The Union of Professional Engineers celebrated its centenary with research. A two-and-a-half-year research project by the historian Sampsa Kaataja resulted in the creation of a book called Takamailta tekniikan kehityksen kärkeen, which was published in October 2019 as part of the 100th anniversary of the Union of Professional Engineers.

The growing importance of technology in people’s daily lives and as a factor in the well-being of states is one of the most significant upheavals in the world over the past hundred years.

In the book Takamailta tekniikan kehityksen kärkeen, the growth of the importance of technology is examined from the perspective of the history of the Union of Professional Engineers. The book describes the gradual expansion of the small association of those trained in technical fields into a large Finnish trade union.

The starting point of the study is the question: how has the Union of Professional Engineers fulfilled its mission as a professional and ideological organization and trade union for engineers. And how has the general development of technology and the situation in Finnish society affected the activities of the Union of Professional Engineers?

The book also addresses the phases of technology in Finland and changes to the position of engineers in society. The book is only in Finnish.
