Promotion of the Image of International Professional Engineers
AIPET promotes activities and events that enhance the visibility of the Engineer in Industry and Society.  The prestigious Engineer of the Year Award and the identification of significant Engineering Achievements in the Country are included amongst them.

International Recognition of Local Engineers
As Engineers want to be recognised by other countries and benefit from international recognition.  AIPET has formed an alliance with other similar bodies around the world. The alliance is growing daily. AIPET is one of  the most  recognised bodies  for Engineers in Africa

Engineers in Business Leadership Roles
Engineers traditionally have complained about their minimal participation in corporate leadership.  Engineers have vision and this must be utilised together with business development training, to encourage them to be the leaders of the future.
AIPET identifies role models and invites their participation in forums which motivate other Engineers.

Improving the Remuneration of Engineers
AIPET actively promotes equitable remuneration for Engineers.  When seen in the light of other professions, this aspect requires the Society to address issues such as regulated rates and categories of work for which an Engineering degree and appropriate training are required.  We monitor the market forces at play  recognising where Engineers must moderate the influence of supply and demand.  We participate in a regular salary survey and provide guidance to members.

Professional Engineering Placements
AIPET recognised that none of the Engineering Institutions have the infra-structure to handle the job applications from Engineers, or enquiries from Employer bodies.  AIPET has accordingly established a process with Professional Engineering Placements to handle the placement of Engineers in the job market World Wide.  AIPET assists the Department of Manpower in Africa  assessing the need for immigrant and ex-patriate Engineers to ensure that, where possible,  Africans are utilised in  Africa  first.

Continuing Education
It is said that the half-life of an Engineering graduate's applicable knowledge is as short as 5 years.  In the technical arena the Institutions should be addressing this.  AIPET is concerned that the aspect of the continued professional development is not taking place and as such is putting into place a system to monitor the continued professional development of engineers.  In areas such as management, finance, law and human relations, AIPET identifies the necessary supplementary education together with educational organisations.  We realise the need for Engineers to influence all walks of life.  For this they must be prepared.
