We are governed by our Board of Trustees, which is advised by a number of executive committees. Our core purpose is to set and maintain the internationally recognised standards for the UK engineering profession, found in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and the ICTTech Standard.
The documents describe the competence and commitment criteria for the professional titles:
To apply for these titles individuals first join a relevant professional engineering institution licensed by the Engineering Council to assess candidates for registration. To achieve registration, engineers and technicians must demonstrate that they possess a range of technical and personal competences, and that they are committed to keeping up-to-date whilst behaving in a professionally and socially responsible manner.
To maintain internationally recognised standards of competence and commitment for the engineering profession and to license competent institutions to champion the standards for the deliverance of public benefit.
That society continues to have confidence and trust in the engineering profession.Print this page
