Engineering Council changes its name

With expansion into Europe and growing international influence, the Engineering Council has dropped the 'UK' from its name. The move is timely as the Council's professional qualifications are receiving increasing recognition abroad as standards of
competence.

Andrew Ramsay, Chief Executive Officer of the Engineering
Council, says, 'With so much importance being placed on our
international activities and the growing interest in our titles
from engineers outside the UK, it seemed appropriate to drop the UK
part of our name, and to simply become known as the Engineering
Council.'

A quarter of engineers registered with the Engineering Council work outside the UK, and professionals holding
Engineering Council titles are spread across 45
different countries.
