Abstract

The UK-SPEC describes the respective competence levels that have to be met for professional registration as an Engineer or an Engineering Technician. At the level of Engineer, a further demarcation between competence levels, often less understood by the academic community, is in the designations Chartered Engineer and Incorporated Engineer. The UK-SPEC clearly sets out criteria which distinguish between the two categories. Background academic training plays an important part in the pathways leading to professional registration, and although not binding, academic qualifications that exemplify the required levels of knowledge and understanding for CEng and IEng registration are explicitly stated in the UK-SPEC. Higher level qualifications are the prime focus of HE sector engineering education providers as well as their clients, i.e. the students, in the context of a highly competitive recruitment setting.
