The Barbados Association of Professional Engineers (BAPE) is a voluntary non-profit organization that was formed in 1964. Its members have generally been responsible for the infrastructural development of Barbados since that time. Members range from professional engineers to students and represent most of the major engineering disciplines.
BAPE was established to:
- Safeguard the professional interest of its members.
- Represent the interest of the general public in matters relating to public safety where the practice of engineering is involved.
- Advance the engineering profession in Barbados.
An Executive Committee, which is elected by the annual ballot of its membership, is responsible for leading the organisation. The Secretariat takes care of the daily operations of the organisation.
Membership consists of Honorary Members, Corporate Members, Graduate Members, Student Members and Affiliate members, all bound by the Association’s professional code of ethics. Click this link for more information about Membership.
