I have my IEng interview in Birmingham in early December.

Any tips, particularly for the presentation as the guidelines are so vague it's unreal!

I've gone from Apprentice to engineer and now Consultant.

I work in the rail industry, providing mechanical and electro-mechanical consultancy on rolling stock (coaches, multiple units and locomotives!)

All advice welcomed.

I hope to apply for CEng in 3 - 4 years, so I'm hoping IEng will provide a useful interim step.

I got IEng last year , same as you time served and worked up to engineer

I prepared a 15 min presentation and took copies for the panel of two interviewing , fairly relaxed interview and they just asked
Questions as I talked through the presentation sat down in front of them.

One bit of advice is make sure you have been networking with others and been contributing to the IET community

The best advice I can offer is that you have clear evidence in your mind on how to answer questions to demonstrate each of the UKSPEC competencies. This is what the panel will use to assess you and if you can show that you have experience in all then you should be fine.

I had my IEng interview this year and it was really straight forward (even though I'd build it up that it was going to be a nightmare); wasn't so much of an interview, more of a chat with like-minded folk.

My advice is to know your application inside out and take with you a portfolio of evidence to support your responses; if put on the spot, then you can pull out drawings/reports/etc to help put your point across.
