1,792 engineers and technicians professionally registered in first three months of 2023
Published:  10 May, 2023

The Engineering Council has congratulated all of the 1,792 engineers and technicians who have become professionally registered with the Council during the first three months of 2023, following a successful assessment of their engineering competence and commitment.

Professional registration is an internationally recognised mark of quality, as it is a standard set by the engineering profession. In 2022 a total of 9,215 people achieved professional registration.

Unlike a purely academic qualification, registration demonstrates a person’s competence (gained through practical experience) as well as their knowledge and understanding. The engineers and technicians who achieve professional registration are skilled professionals who have chosen to have their expertise independently verified. Registrants are able to use post nominal letters after their names to show they hold one of these legally protected titles, demonstrating their professional status:

• Chartered Engineer (CEng)

• Incorporated Engineer (IEng)

• Engineering Technician (EngTech)

• Information and Communications Technology Technician (ICTTech)

In the first quarter of 2023:

• 971 people achieved CEng

• 262 people achieved IEng

• 517 people achieved EngTech

• 42 people achieved ICTTech

Engineering Council CEO Alasdair Coates BEng(Hons) MSc CEng FICE MCIHT CMIOSH said:

“Congratulations to everyone registered in the first few months of 2023 on their achievement! We understand what a professional and personal milestone professional registration is.

“Registration sets individuals apart from their non-registered colleagues, as every professionally registered engineer and technician has chosen to have their competence independently assessed. As a condition of maintaining registration, registrants commit to maintaining and enhancing that competence, as well as to working in an ethical and sustainable way. This means society and employers can have confidence in registrants as engineering professionals.”
