Chartered Engineers share their experiences and explain the benefits of CEng to their career.
“I think it’s important to work towards professional registration to distinguish real engineers from technicians and other work fields that label themselves as 'engineers'. I think the process keeps you motivated too and focused on what you can do next."
“The IET has everything that an active member requires to continue his own development. It's got the right tools in place, the right support. For someone who wishes to develop, you can achieve much more as an IET member.”
"The IET was very helpful with coming forward and providing a mentor for me when I was applying for Chartered Engineer status. Its mentoring service was very good and I’d recommend it to anyone in a similar situation."
"To be associated with the IET is valuable as it is a globally recognised institution within the engineering, technology profession with interests in a diverse array of subjects. The IET offers networking opportunities, within the various Technical Professional Networks (TPNs), Local Networks (LNs) and fellow IET members around the world. The IET also supports your long term development of your career and achieving professionally recognised Chartered Engineer (CEng) status."
"There’s obviously access to a lot of information as an IET member but it’s also about the contacts and the networks. I’ve got to meet like minded people who are at the same professional level and have the same kinds of goals as me."
"For me, joining the IET was about professional recognition and I could continue my learning and professional development with the organisation. With the IET you’ve got access to a lot of different resources."
