The Engineering Council, its Trustees and staff are saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second and would like to offer their condolences to the Royal Family.
Her Majesty’s support for professional engineering institutions and for the work of the engineering profession was greatly appreciated. As an organisation established by Royal Charter, the Engineering Council particularly wishes to acknowledge the way in which Her Majesty sustained public benefit and charitable objects.
The dedication to public duty Her Majesty demonstrated throughout her life was admired not only across the United Kingdom, but around the world, and her loss will be felt by the country as a whole.

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.
