EngC register news:
Ian Henderson, a graduate of the MSc Professional Engineering course at Kingston University, has become the first graduate of the Engineering Gateways scheme to become a Chartered Engineer with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. During this time, Ian was working for Caterpillar, but is now a mechanical design engineer at Seven Technologies. He states: "I received tremendous support from Caterpillar throughout the MSc and CEng registration process. The Education Assistance Programme and the ability to work on challenging projects, coupled with continued support and guidance from my workplace mentor, Dermot Murphy, enabled me to make CEng a reality." Mike Hope of Kingston University emphasises the flexibility of the programme: "Ian is an excellent example of how useful this approach to gaining an MSc and then CEng can be. Ian was always very keen to understand the significance of engineering principles underlying his engineering judgements and how he could improve them."
