As an engineer who chooses to work abroad, you need to make sure that your qualifications are recognised in other countries.
International qualifications are important if you decide to work as an engineer overseas. A UK degree is generally recognised globally. However, you may find that your Honours degree is considered inferior in some places as Masters degrees are much more common in some countries, such as the USA.
British engineering qualifications are also recognised abroad. There are six international engineering agreements in place that recognise qualifications and competence. Three of these agreements recognise completion of an accredited programme of study two, three or four years in length after secondary school level. The remaining agreements recognise individual proficiencies of professional engineers, engineering technologists and Engineering Technicians that meet certain standards in their fields.
If you are coming to the UK and your qualifications were achieved in another country, you may wish to contact National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC) who are able to provide information on the equivalency of qualifications and what level they would be considered to be at.
