GBB are delighted to announce that director, Philip Hoyes, was registered as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) with the Engineering Council on the 5th October 2012 reflecting his standing as a professionally qualified engineer.
In the United Kingdom, a Chartered Engineer is an engineer registered with Engineering Council (the British regulatory body for engineers). Contemporary Chartered Engineers are master’s degree-qualified and have gained professional competencies through training and experience. The formation process of a Chartered Engineer is generally a minimum of 8 years.
The Engineering Council is the UK regulatory body for the engineering profession and professional registration is the mechanical engineering industry’s gold standard.
Chartered Engineers develop appropriate solutions to engineering problems. They may develop and apply new technologies, promote advanced designs and design methods and introduce new and more efficient production techniques, or pioneer new engineering services and management methods. The title CEng is protected by civil law and is one of the most recognisable international engineering qualifications.
Chartered Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial leadership and possess effective interpersonal skills.
Together with his acceptance as full member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Philip plans to utilise this credential to underpin a framework at GBB that encourages IMechE membership, provides mentorship and support for undergraduates and a structured training scheme for the next generation of Forensic Engineers.
