In the Netherlands, somebody holding an engineer's degree is an ingenieur. There are two types of engineering abbreviations:

ir. is obtained by university graduates (Wetenschappelijk onderwijs or WO). It is the highest engineer qualification. - 5 years study (3 B.Sc. + 2 M.Sc.)
ing. is obtained by graduates of polytechnics (hoger beroeps onderwijs or HBO). - 4 years study (4 B.Sc.)

Names are traditionally prefixed with the ir. and/ or ing. titles. Use of these titles are regulated and protected by Dutch law. Under the Bologna agreement the titles are increasingly interchanged with the English-language degrees (B.Sc, BBE, M.Sc, etc.).

Completion of Dutch (WO) engineering qualifications have historically demanded a lot of effort. On average the 5 year course takes 7 years to finish.
