Engineering Council removes institution licence

Published: 04/12/2014

The Engineering Council regrets to announce that on 23 October its Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) decided to withdraw the licence of the Institution of Diesel and Gas Turbine Engineers (IDGTE) with immediate effect, due to a number of concerns.  This means that IDGTE can no longer assess members for inclusion on the national register of professional engineers and technicians.
In order for members of IDGTE who are currently registered as Engineering Technician (EngTech) to retain their professional status, the organisation is following the recommendation by QAC to apply for approval as a Professional Affiliate (PA) of the Engineering Council.  Once approved, IDGTE will be able to set up the relevant Registration Agreement with one of the licenced institutions to register members through that institution.
