The FÃ©dÃ©ration Internationale des SociÃ©tÃ©s d'IngÃ©nieurs des Techniques de l'Automobile (FISITA) is the world body linking together the national automotive engineering societies in 38 countries.
FISITA was founded in Paris in 1948 with the purpose of bringing engineers from around the world together in a spirit of cooperation to share ideas and advance the technological development of the automobile. The federationâ€™s first president was the eminent French engineer, Maurice Norroy.
Today FISITA represents more than 165,000 automotive engineers worldwide.
FISITA's mission is to help create efficient, affordable, safe and sustainable automotive transportation. It serves as a global forum for dialogue between engineers, industry, government, academia, environmental and standards organizations.
FISITAâ€™s main activity is the organisation of the biennial FISITA World Automotive Congress â€“ one of the biggest international meetings of engineers, scientists and executives working in the automotive industry.
Other activities include http://www.yourfutureinautomotive.com a website for students and young engineers providing education information, travel bursary information, educational resources, career guidance and much more to help support the education and training of students and young engineers.
FISITA and Your Future in automotive also launched a series of video interviews with engineers working across the automotive industry to show students and engineers exactly what a career in automotive is like: https://www.youtube.com/user/YourFutureInAuto/videos.
European Automobile Engineers Cooperation (EAEC) is a cooperation within the core of FISITA.
