To assist in raising awareness and understanding of the value of the Incorporated Engineer (IEng) professional qualification, the Engineering Council has issued a new IEng eBook, which acts as a definitive guide to becoming registered as an IEng. The innovative eBook is available to download from the Engineering Council’s website, at: /ebook.aspx
Jon Prichard, CEO of the Engineering Council says: “While Chartered Engineer (CEng) status is already well respected and recognised our research has shown that there is still a general lack of understanding about the value of the IEng title. In reality, IEng registration would allow many more engineers, working in a range of positions across every sector of engineering, to reap the benefits of professionally qualified status earlier in their careers.
“Although we already have around 36,000 Incorporated Engineers on the Engineering Council’s register, lack of awareness has led to a large number of practising engineers not having applied, despite meeting the relevant standards of knowledge and competence to be eligible for IEng. We hope that the introduction of the IEng eBook will help to overcome this.”
The eBook is the latest tool created by the Engineering Council as part of a campaign, developed together with the Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs), to raise the profile of IEng, and increase recognition of its value to individuals, employers, the profession and society as a whole.
