New registrant numbers increase

Apr 18, 2018

Almost 10,000 engineers and technicians joined the register in 2017, according to new figures from The Engineering Council. Women represented almost 11% of new registrants and it was second consecutive year for EngTech registrations. While the total number of registrants has shown a slight decline of 0.61% in 2017, the total number of registrations has grown by just under 5% since 2013.

Alasdair Coates, CEO, Engineering Council said:

"We are pleased to see positive trends, with the number of new final registrations increasing year on year and an unprecedented number of Engineering Technicians becoming registered in 2017. Registration is open to any practicing engineer or technician who can demonstrate the required level of competence – there are many routes into engineering, but the standard achieved is what matters."
