Incorporated Engineer 

IEngIncorporated Engineer is a professional title for engineers. It is for engineers who are responsible for managing and maintaining current and developing technologies in a practical and creative way. Those eligible may undertake engineering design, development, manufacture, construction and operation. As with CEng (see last month’s ‘What the Hec?!’), the Engineering Council (EC) holds the national register of IEng and the title can only be used by individuals currently on the national register.

As a Licensed Member of the Engineering Council, BINDT can assess the suitability of members for admission to the EC register as IEng. The NDT Engineer apprenticeship will equip the apprentice with the necessary requirements to be eligible to apply for professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and membership of a professional body (BINDT).
