AQPE was born with a clear mission: to recognize the competencies of engineers through a professional certification that would allow them to differentiate themselves from other agents in the sector and open their work horizons around the world. To achieve this, we believed it was essential to have an evaluation committee that was up to the task, made up of excellent professionals from all areas of the engineering sector. Below, you can learn more about the team that makes up AQPE. Together, we work every day to provide the best tools that allow the empowerment of engineers’ careers in a direct way.

Below, we will introduce 6 of the 18 committee members. In future posts, we will introduce the entire team.
