IEE votes to accept IEngs and EngTechs

Members of the Institution of Electrical Engineers have voted overwhelmingly to offer registration for Incorporated Engineers (IEngs) and Engineering Technicians (EngTechs) as ell as Chartered Engineers (CEngs). At a Special General Meeting, the proposal was approved by 18,074 votes to 1,165.

The IEE`s chief executive, Dr Alf Roberts, hails the vote as "very good news" which "represents a positive and logical step following the decision last year to separate the CEng qualification from the criteria for becoming a Member of the IEE (MIEE)".

Roberts adds that the multi-skilled, flexible IEngs and EngTechs are viewed by employers as an invaluable resource. "I believe offering IEng and EngTech registration can only enrich and extend the IEE`s role in the engineering community," he says.

The IEE is now seeking Privy Council approval and applying to the Engineering Council UK for a licence for it to register IEng and EngTech members. It hopes to complete the process by the end of the year.
