Its establishment following an exploratory meeting convened and organised by The Engineering Institute of Thailand under The King's Patronage with the support of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on 3 July 1978 in Chiang Mai. Being an independent umbrella organization for the engineering institutions in the Southeast Asia and the Pacific region, the objectives of FEISEAP are to encourage the application of technical progress to economic and social advancement throughout the world; to advance engineering as a profession in the interest of all people; and to foster peace throughout the world. The Federation was, itself, an international member of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), that pursues objectives similar to those of FEISEAP on a global scale. The Constitution of the Federation has been amended several times at its biennial General Assemblies. At the 14th General Assembly of FEISEAP held in Cebu, Philippines, on 26 November, 2007 the question of the continuation of FEISEAP was discussed. It was unanimously agreed at that General Assembly, that the Federation should continue provided that its Constitution was reviewed to more clearly define its objectives and to broaden the scope of economies eligible for membership. This version of the Constitution is the result of that review and consultation with all Members. It was unanimously adopted by the Special General Assembly of the Federation held in Hanoi, Viet Nam, on 2 June 2008.
