Independent research tells The Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) that registered engineers are more successful in their careers than those that are non-registered. Not only can you earn more, but professional registration also gives you enhanced status and demonstrates your commitment to your profession and your career development.
IAgrE is one of the institutions licensed by the Engineering Council. To achieve engineering professional registration, whether as Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng), or Engineering Technician (EngTech), you must first become a member of a professional engineering institution (PEI), such as IAgrE.
A series of four videos have been created that demonstrate the benefits of membership and encourage engineers to become professionally registered with the Engineering Council or the Society of the Environment through IAgrE.
“If you are thinking about becoming registered, whether it’s as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), a Chartered Environmentalist or the various other grades, IAgrE will mentor you through the process. We are a friendly Institution for engineers and environmentalists working in agriculture, horticulture and the land-based industries, with members from all sectors, ready and happy to help and support you through your career journey,” said Charlie Nicklin CEO of IAgrE.
In the first video, young members and employers talk about the benefits of belonging to a professional membership organisation and why IAgrE is great value for money. The second video looks at the benefits tailored to the needs of its membership. The focus of video three is the importance of professional registration and how it benefits you in your career. The final video is all about how IAgrE is a community more than an institution and the value of professional networks.
“Many members are leaders in their field. It’s very easy to talk to somebody in IAgrE and you feel like you are part of a family. There are plenty of networking opportunities and you can make great new friends – you can’t put a value on the knowledge you will get from members,” added Charlie.
