Alex Currie's comments that there is currently a greater number of chartered engineers is correct, but perhaps part of the problem with salaries is an oversupply. Employers have found that incorporated engineers can be called on to perform the majority of engineering tasks, with chartered engineers being necessary for leadership and vision (and I am NOT saying that incorporated engineers are not in possession of these abilities).
Professor Fleming's comment on graduates is totally correct. Mr Currie fails to understand that the term graduate refers to those members who have achieved an academic qualification that will allow them to undertake a professional review. This covers MPR AMPR and TMPR.
