About Us

As the regulatory body for the UK engineering profession, the Engineering Council sets and maintains internationally recognised standards of professional competence and commitment. 

These are detailed in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and the Information and Communications Technology Technician (ICTTech) Standard. 

We also hold the national register of over 222,000 engineers and technicians who have been assessed against these standards and awarded one of our professional titles:

The award and retention of these titles ensures that employers, government and wider society – both in the UK and overseas – can have confidence in the knowledge, experience and commitment of engineers and technicians on the register.

In addition there are over 10,000 engineers and technicians on the national register classified as Interim Registrants, having registered their intention to work towards one of the professional titles above.
