The Uganda Association of Consulting Engineers is the body responsible for representing the professional concerns and general business interests of its members in the field of consulting engineering. It was founded in 1993 with a membership of eight member firms; membership has since grown to thirty member firms.
Internationally, UACE represents Uganda through its affiliation to International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC). FIDIC is an international umbrella body which caters for both National and Regional consulting engineering associations in respect of engineering professional ethics, standards, client /consultant/contractor relationships, among others. UACE is also a member of Group of Africa Member Associations (GAMA), a regional grouping of national member associations in Africa.
UACE is fully recognized by both the government and Uganda Institution of Professional Engineers (UIPE). UACE was incorporated as a private company limited by guarantee by the Registrar of Companies in 2001.
