Gaining IEng or CEng status is just as straightforward for engineers who are teachers or researchers as it is for an engineer working in industry. Evidence of competence can be provided in a variety of ways, such as course development, involvement in research, managing research projects, an industrial placement, working independently on consultancy or voluntary engineering work.
A leaflet outlining how teachers and researchers can achieve professional recognition and explaining the benefits is available. This and other relevant documents can be downloaded from the right hand side of this page. For hard copies of the leaflet email firstname.lastname@example.org
"As a junior member of staff, I used the engineering registration requirements to identify gaps in my professional development which needed reinforcement to become a Chartered Engineer. I value the status greatly as it links me to a worldwide professional network which now helps me to manage a large engineering faculty."
Dr Rob Best, CEng, FIChemE, London South Bank University
"Over half the staff in my section are registered as IEng or CEng, and we believe that professional engineer status gives us credibility with our industrial partners."
