I know that I've sounded off on this forum more than once or twice, regarding CEng registration, but I stuck with it, travelled to London for the interview and managed to get through.

It hasn't been without moments of sheer frusutration, disappointment and disillusionment, but the climb is worth it if you really want. The view from the top looks good!

If there is anyone out there thinking of giving up, don't. The feeling of achievement is good.

(And my wife bought me a new Barbour jacket at Selfridges while I was in the interview).

Congratulations David.

Hope the smoking jacket and cigars are to your taste?

I going to see if I can become only the second man to invent the Television. Failing that, I'll try my luck and enter the 'Young Woman Engineer of the year' competition.

Cheers

My smoking jacket is faux-suede with plasticky elbow pads. Disappointing.

However, cigars are havana mini's, specially imported from that shop down the road in Broughty Ferry.

Wine. Well, Chateau Pape de Neuf 1996. Naturally!

Well done Sir dvaidr.

And you even got some congrats from Lord mbirdi as well.

Ok now we know how it's done, here we go:

Well in my opinion the IET is a lot of old %$*&t and if you ask me they have totally &^5$££? against me for years and years and years and I am just about **&!$%.

Ok going to check the post over the next few days!

Regards.

PS: If you think the view looks good from the top look up and you will see the Lord above you.....yes that's Lord mbirdi and his merry men.

Well done - after all it WAS worth the journey. To others who might be finding the journey arduous. Please do not give up. Remember however OBJECTIVE the process is designed to be, in the end you have to be judged by your peers, that is what is required by the Engineering Council and peers may have different opinions depending on their background and experience.
As a volunteer, I can only say that the IET does do the best it can to provide advice and make sure every candidate gets the best opportunity to present their credentials.
But sometimes there can be too much advice and as professional engineers we have to do what we are good at and weigh up all the factors, data etc and then make that application

Congratulations - I have decided not to proceed as I am heading towards 59 this year and to be honest if I wasn't worth CEng 4 years ago - nothing has changed for me so it the value of CEng is called into question if I get it now .
As the interview panel said "what difference would it make to you"
It did at the time put off 4 Managers from applying
