The history of the Incorporateds.
Professional registration at Incorporated Engineer (IEng) level has existed for over 40 years. It started life as Technician Engineer (TEng) and was formally changed to IEng in 1988..
To help deliver the IEng strand of the strategic plan Engineering Council have set out to dispel some of the misconceptions. It was considered important to explain the evolution of IEng registration. Former EngC CEO, Andrew Ramsay, agreed to write 'A history of Incorporated Engineers', which is now available on the EngC website (www.engc.org.uk/professional-qualifications/incorporated-engineer/history-of-ieng)
The history traces the 19th century origins of Incorporated Engineers, from fierce debates about the value of academic versus hands-on experience, to the drive for recognition in the late 20th century
