New Opportunities for ACostE Members

The Engineering Committee would like to make our members aware of significant opportunities that are theirs through our new Licensee relationship with the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE).  IHE is licensed for the award of the Engineering Council professional qualifications of Engineering Technician (EngTech) and Information Communication Technology Technician (ICTTech).

The Engineering Council registration statistics show that these professional qualifications are growing, in both popularity and employer demand, at an increasing rate and it is through our relationship with IHE that these professional qualifications are available to suitably qualified and experienced ACostE members.

The present COVID19 pandemic makes it difficult to achieve the CEng and IEng professional qualifications because they demand a face to face interview.  EngTech and ICTTech can be achieved on the basis of a document submission demonstrating practical experience and competence.
So, what is stopping you achieving this valuable and visible recognition of your experience and professionalism?  Absolutely nothing, providing you have the necessary qualifications and experience – and we, on the Engineering Committee will help you along every step of the way.

EngTech and ICTTech registration is not dependent on formal academic qualifications but you would typically be expected to hold a Level 3 qualification, such as a modern apprenticeship, an NVQ, an HND/HNC or City and Guilds relevant to your occupation.
