The Engineering Council produces a series of guidance publications for individual engineers and technicians, which may also be useful to those studying engineering.
Topics given enhanced emphasis in the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) fourth edition include sustainability and ethics. Our Guidance on Sustainability was updated in January 2021 following a wide-ranging consultation with the engineering community and set out six principles to guide engineering professionals in integrating understanding of the environment and sustainability into all aspects of their work. The Statement of Ethical Principles is jointly published by the Engineering Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering and – building on this Statement - a joint Engineering Ethics Reference Group (EERG) has been established.
All our Guidance is free to view and download from the Engineering Council website, with handy wallet cards available digitally and in hard copy for easy reference, at: www.engc.org.uk/guidance
