Who can act as my supporter(s)?

You must nominate one or optionally two / three supporters to endorse the details of your application.

The requirements for a supporter are:

  • Mandatory: a supporter who has known you professionally for two or more years, working at a senior level to you and with direct knowledge of your role and responsibilities, such as your current line manager, employer or PhD Supervisor.
  • Preferred: as well as the mandatory requirement it is preferable to also choose a supporter who is Engineering Council or international equivalent registered engineer, who is a Member or Fellow of the IET or another Professional Engineering Institute (PEI).
  • A second and third supporter is optional and may be necessary, for example, if you work on contracts, as an additional signature to enable adequately verified periods for your employment.

For Chartered Engineer and Incorporated Engineer, your supporter(s) are required to:

  • sign copies of any higher education certificate(s) you have submitted to confirm they are true copies;
  • complete and return the Supporter Reference Form to support your application with your application. Your application cannot progress until the Supporter Reference Form has been received.
