IET Chief Executive Nigel Fine has recently joined a number of senior engineering staff at BAE Systems Submarine Solutions Ltd in Barrow-in-Furness to celebrate their success in gaining either IET Fellowship or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
Nine successful IET Fellowships were being celebrated whilst 19 individuals had achieved Chartered Engineer (CEng). Speaking at the event Nigel said ‘I would like to congratulate those who have recently achieved their Chartered Engineer and Fellowship status with the IET.
They should all be immensely proud of themselves as these achievements show a high level of professional commitment and competence. It’s a brilliant achievement and a real mile stone in their career’.
Nigel went onto say ‘I would also like to thank those at BAE, especially BAE Systems Maritime – Submarines Capability Manager Martin Pulford, who have helped to retain a strong partnership with the IET and will continue to do so in the future. This bond between industry and the Institution has facilitated the Company Based Registration Scheme, which this year alone has produced 18 Chartered Engineers and nine new IET Fellows for the hardworking staff at BAE systems here in Barrow’.
‘As an IET Corporate Partner, BAE has been able to benefit from fully coordinated company based schemes for Fellowship and registration’ Sally Davidson Jones, IET National Partnership Manager adds. ‘We encourage a team approach to application and set milestones and deadlines along the way. The scheme gives staff the motivation to follow the application process in a structured way’, she adds.
Early October 2013 saw the IET launch the next IET Company Based Registration Scheme where the IET Partnership team are hoping to assist 50 CEng applicants and nine Fellowship application towards successful outcomes.
