Almost 4,000 engineers and technicians professionally registered in 2022


In Engineering, Professionalism, Registration

The Engineering Council would like to congratulate every one of the 3,893 new registrants so far this year on their achievement.

In the second quarter of 2022, over 1,800 engineers and technicians became 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.

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 second quarter of 2022:

  • 1,063 people achieved CEng
  • 214 people achieved IEng
  • 522 people achieved EngTech
  • 54 people achieved ICTTech

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

“Congratulations to every single person who has achieved the milestone of professional registration so far this year! We understand what a huge achievement this is – both professionally and personally.

“Registration provides confidence for society, employers and customers, who can verify that every registrant’s competence has been independently assessed and they understand the importance of committing to working in an ethical and sustainable way. All registrants also commit to maintaining and enhancing their competence, as a condition of maintaining registration.”

The Engineering Council is pleased to see over a thousand new EngTech registrants in the first half of 2022, underlining the importance of technicians and the work they do.
