An extensive review of the UK engineering profession by Professor John Uff CBE QC FREng has been published. It was commissioned in March 2016 by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). As a result of the review these institutions have agreed to put in place five work streams. These are:
- advice to governments
- promotion of the profession in schools
- support for knowledge sharing across engineering disciplines
- a review of the efficiency of our accreditation of academic courses
- a programme to engage and support members of the engineering industry who are not currently professionally registered
This is a significant report in setting out ways the engineering profession can modernise to best serve the interests of the profession, its members, engineering employers and society. As such, the Engineering Council looks forward to continuing its engagement with all the institutions on this important programme of work.
