Text reads "For quarter 2, congratulations to 1,853 new registrants!". Image of streamers and happy registrant.The Engineering Council would like to congratulate every one of the 3,893 new registrants so far this year on their achievement.

In the second quarter of 2022, over 1,800 engineers and technicians became professionally registered with the Engineering Council, following a successful assessment of their engineering competence and commitment. Professional registration is an internationally recognised mark of quality, as it is a standard set by the engineering profession.

Unlike a purely academic qualification, registration demonstrates a person’s competence (gained through practical experience) as well as their knowledge and understanding. The engineers and technicians who achieve professional registration are skilled professionals who have chosen to have their expertise independently verified. Registrants are able to use post nominal letters after their names to show they hold one of these legally protected titles, demonstrating their professional status:

In the second quarter of 2022:

  • 1,063 people achieved CEng
  • 214 people achieved IEng
  • 522 people achieved EngTech
  • 54 people achieved ICTTech

Engineering Council CEO Alasdair Coates BEng(Hons) MSc CEng FICE MCIHT CMIOSH said:

“Congratulations to every single person who has achieved the milestone of professional registration so far this year! We understand what a huge achievement this is – both professionally and personally.

Registration provides confidence for society, employers and customers, who can verify that every registrant’s competence has been independently assessed and they understand the importance of working in an ethical and sustainable way. All registrants also commit to maintaining and enhancing their competence, as a condition of maintaining registration.”

To verify an engineer or technician’s Engineering Council registration, use our online tool RegCheck:

The Engineering Council licenses 39 professional engineering institutions (PEIs) to assess individuals for professional registration, which is open to any competent practising engineer or technician, with different levels and pathways to registration available.

The Engineering Council was incorporated by Royal Charter in November 1981 to regulate the engineering profession in the UK. This is our 40th year of setting and maintaining standards, to ensure that society continues to have confidence and trust in the engineering profession.

The Engineering Council holds the national Register of Engineering Technicians (EngTech), Incorporated Engineers (IEng), Chartered Engineers (CEng) and Information and Communication Technology Technicians (ICTTech). It also sets and maintains the internationally recognised standards of competence and ethics that govern the award and retention of these titles. By this means it is able to ensure that employers, government and wider society, both at home and overseas, can have confidence in the skills and commitment of registrants. For more information see:
