Triple Accreditation Success for Engineering

Accreditation of Engineering programmes provides many benefits for our students.
Triple Accreditation Success for Engineering

All our degrees are accredited by Engineering Council UK

After a joint accreditation visit by three professional engineering institutions, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC), the new School of Engineering has received formal notification from the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) in August 2019 that its undergraduate programmes and masters programmes have been successfully accredited for the next five years, intake years 2019-2023. Professor Jonathon Chambers FREng said “…this is testament to the exceptional efforts of all staff in providing the very best engineering education to all of our students. The accreditation process has been extremely thorough and the outcome ensures that our graduates will have the reassurance that they are gaining degrees fully recognised by three of the UK’s professional engineering institutions thereby maximising their employment opportunities.” Jonathon wished to acknowledge the contributions of all academic and support staff involved in this triple accreditation success, in particular the leadership of Dr Tim Pearce and Dr Hugo Williams.

As stated by the EAB, "...Upon graduation from the accredited programmes, undergraduate students will have fulfilled the educational requirements for professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). Those graduating with either an accredited integrated MEng degree, or an appropriately accredited Bachelors degree with honours plus either an accredited Masters degree or appropriate further learning to Masters level, will have also fulfilled the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration."
