New streamlined route to chartered status

The University of South Wales has developed a new pathway to achieving Chartered status. It combines a part-time master’s degree, work based learning and the ICE Professional Review over two years. 

The University of South Wales has developed a new pathway to achieving Chartered status. It combines a part-time master’s degree, work based learning and the ICE Professional Review over two years. 

The part time MSc in Civil Engineering, developed with ICE Wales Cymru, offers those with a degree, or Incorporated Civil Engineer status and two years’ work experience, the opportunity to complete their Masters degree and undertake their Initial Professional Development (IPD) as a dual process. It would culminate in a full Professional Review to be held at the university campus. 

Traditionally graduates would complete a Masters degree before starting their IPD with a training agreement – via the new mentoring system or by a career appraisal. They can then apply for their Chartered Professional Review. 

By embedding professional development into the academic study, the new route streamlines the process while still applying the same criteria and standards.
