Over 6,200 engineers and technicians professionally registered in 2022

During 2022, over 6,300 engineers and technicians have become professionally registered with the Engineering Council, 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.  

The Engineering Council would like to congratulate every one of the 6,280 new registrants so far this year on their achievement. 2,387 engineers and technicians became registered during Q3.  

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 third quarter of 2022:

  • 1,283 people achieved CEng
  • 332 people achieved IEng
  • 740 people achieved EngTech
  • 32 people achieved ICTTech

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

“We understand what a milestone professional registration represents – both professionally and personally. Congratulations to every single person registered this year on that huge achievement!  

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, employers and customers can have confidence in registrants as engineering professionals.”
