I was wondering if anyone can help.

I'm trying to get a definitive interpretation of the UK-Spec and if it applies to me.

I have graduated with a BEng in Mechanical Engineer and have taken up a role as a Quality Engineer. As my role is mainly in the area of quality assurance I am wondering if it is possible for me to achieve CEng status with the IET.

I know that the CQI is open to me but given that my background is in Mechanical I don't want to close that door on myself just yet. Any advise would be appreciated.

I started off as a Quality Engineer for a good few years before moving into Production Engineering (before the fancy Manufacturing Engineering title came about).

All my Quality Assurance Training and experience counted towards CEng without any issue at all. In fact, the training element of my application was solely done during my Quality Engineer career.

Only issue (aside from fulfilling key CEng requirements [think being innovative and creative] is education relevance. The starting point is degree followed by a period of work learning/experience/development FOLLOWING on from your degree. If you work in a different engineering field to your primary degree, then that period of work based learning/development/application will end up being somewhat longer.

No reason you cannot make it, but the time period will depend on how much of your Mechanical degree is applicable to the QA role in the crudest sense.
