Universities and colleges are encouraged to use the ‘Engineering Council accredited degree’ logo alongside the name of all degree programmes that have been accredited. It may be used with the logo of the professional engineering institution that undertook the accreditation. The logo may be used on the university or college website and in the prospectus or other material promoting the accredited programme. It must only be used with a programme that currently holds accredited status. Care must be taken not to mislead potential students if, for example, accreditation is about to run out.
The logo can be downloaded below, and is available in different sizes, both in colour or black and white. A version is also available in Welsh. To add the logo to your website, prospectus or promotional material related to the accredited programme, it is best to attach it through 'insert picture' rather than ‘cut and paste’.
The following wording, aimed at potential students, may be used with the logo to explain the meaning and promote the value of accredited status. It is available in a word document in the useful documents below.
This degree has been accredited by (name of relevant professional engineering insitution(s)) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
Achredwyd y radd hon gan (name of relevant professional engineering institution(s)) dan drwydded gan reolydd y Deyrnas Unedig, yr Engineering Council. Mae achrediad yn nod sicrwydd fod y radd yn cwrdd â’r safonau a nodwyd gan yr Engineering Council yn UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Bydd gradd achrededig yn rhoi rhywfaint neu’r cyfan o’r wybodaeth, y ddealltwriaeth a’r sgiliau creiddiol sydd eu hangen i gofrestru maes o law fel Peiriannydd Corfforedig (IEng) neu Beiriannydd Siartredig (CEng). Mae rhai cyflogwyr yn dewis recriwtio rhai sydd â graddau achrededig, ac mae’n debygol y bydd gwledydd eraill sydd wedi llofnodi cytundebau rhyngwladol yn cydnabod graddau achrededig
