Free professional review for water engineers

Career prospects for engineers in the water industry are being boosted by an offer of free professional review to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech) status.

The Institute of Water is waiving its usual £168 professional review fee until the end of June. This is the second year that the Institute has held this promotion.

According to the Engineering Council, there has been a marked increase in demand for professional registration and, given the economic climate, the Institute of Water said it is now aiming to help more engineers to progress in their careers.

“Becoming registered is an increasingly important career move for engineers,” said Institute of Water chief executive Lynn Cooper.

“Not only does registration improve job security and career prospects, but average salaries are much higher than those of non-chartered engineers.

“The 2010 survey of registered engineers conducted by Electoral Reform Services reported that the median annual total earning were £55k CEng; £43.3k IEng; £37k EngTech.”
