SAIEE, serving engineers since 1909

FORMED in 1909, The South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE), a voluntary non-profit association, has grown to approximately 6 000 engineering professionals. Our members are professionally engaged in the full range of engineering activities, including academic research, manufacturing, electronics, telecommunications, measurement and control, mining, and power infra-structural services. Members make meaningful contributions to the quality of life in communities and the steady advancement of technology. Their efforts are acknowledged in many countries worldwide.

SAIEE Membership is open to anyone involved in the technical aspects of engineering. Members are graded according to academic qualifications, experience, and achievement in their profession.

Our purpose is to enhance the practice of electrical engineering in South Africa and the stature of our members through knowledge, networking, influence, education and communication.

As a practising engineer, the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) requires registered engineers to earn at least 5 Continual Professional Development (CPD) credits per year, derived from Category 1, 2 and 3 to maintain their professional registration. For this reason, we have launched the SAIEE Training Academy in 2019, offering engineering professionals a cost-effective training solution.

We offer both online and face-to-face training by lecturers who are experts in their respective fields of specialisation. The SAIEE Training Academy also offers group bookings, and training discounts apply to five or more delegates from the same company. With this offering, not only do companies save on training costs but they are assured of quality courses to maintain their employees’ industry competency. We encourage interested parties to register early, as spaces in our classroom and online platforms are limited.

SAIEE Members receives excellent discounts, and non-members do receive value for money with our very competitive rates. Our classroom course fees, offered nationwide in South Africa, includes breakfast, lunch, and training material. Interested parties in rural areas can earn CPD credits via our online platform. All SAIEE Training Academy courses can be presented as In-house training courses both face-to-face and online. These training courses can be customised to suit the customer’s requirements.
