Whatever happened to the EC Registration Cards showing C Eng / I Eng or Eng Tech, once registered you are given a certificate but who wants to walk around with a certificate, I feel that the EC or IET should provide Registration Cards showing your EC Designation, after all we do have membership cards showing grade of membership, its a bit rediculous that we cannot demonstrate our EC Designation without a certificate,
as for me I would not mind paying for a card.

I am sure this topic came up in the past.

I am not certain having another piece of plastic is the answer. It would possibly be nicer to be able to suffix yourself 'Ing.' .As is the case for our continental counterparts who prefix themselves 'Ir.'

I know that we cannot protect the title Engineer, because it is in common usage and abusage in the English language, but thinking laterally, why not the latin 'ingeniarius' or 'machinator'.

Back to the your question, didn't FEANI all ready talk about introducing a ENGCARD for European engineers, but have since put the idea on ice.

If you want to ask the Engineering Council what the latest is, perhaps contacting them directly is the best way forward.

Of course, kudos and prestige aside, just be quietly satisfied that your part of a profession which makes everything else (outside the natural world) work.
