Chartered Engineer 2016

So, anyone else looking to submit their Chartership Report this year for Engineers Ireland? I've drafted my report and essays and am awaiting feedback on them from my supporters.

Does anyone have any advice for what to do/what not to do when seeking Chartership?

The one piece of advice I would give is that if you get to the interview stage you are sorted. It isnt a job interview you are going for. There isnt 500 candidates going for one job. If 500 candidates are at CEng standard 500 candidates will be awarded CEng status. So prepare for the interview like it was a job interview but on the day relax and realize that it is just a review of your report.

PM me your email address and I'll sort you out

Spoke with Roseanne in our membership department who deals with Chartered Engineer applications and she had a few tips (which you may already be aware of )

Hope they help and do not be afraid to give her a bell on 01 665 1300 if you have any further questions.

  • Make sure you read all the information thoroughly in the Regulations and Guidance Notes. Ensure your report contains every element required. If you are thinking of doing something different to the regulations, please contact her asap.
  • Give your supporters enough time to read the report and allow them enough time to originally sign it. One copy of the report needs to be originally signed.
  • Application needs be submitted on or before the 25 January at 5pm.
  • Get a fresh pair of eyes on your application by getting someone else to check spelling, grammar and syntax. The assessors are very strict on it. They need to ensure that the report is written using the first person singular and that you provide examples of your significant engineering work.

  • Do notsubmit a report over the word count or not signed by your supporters as it will be returned to you immediately.
  • If your report contains pictures or drawings, they need to go into the appendix at the back and the appendix should not exceed six pages.

I received an e-mail from Engineers Ireland yesterday on this. Thought this info might be good for any people looking at chartership this year:

Quote:
You may be interested in applying for the Registered Professional Title of Chartered Engineer. If you are interested in applying, the 2013 deadlines for applications under the current regulations are 25 January 2013, and 28 June 2013.

For further information on how to apply please visit:

Credit cards will be accepted as payment when you submit your application.
We can take your details over the phone also.

Alas we are not accepting soft copies of applications, hard copy only please.

@godtabh - We are looking at our IT Infrastructure following our system failing last year and it will be put in place for future applications but it wasn't possible to have it ready for tomorrow.

How many on average apply at each deadline? Just curious really.

I intend applying soon, possibly for the summer deadline.

Oh right, so I don't have to send a soft copy of it at all? That's a bit disappointing, I've spend ages putting together different scanned pages!

At the last CEng briefing I went to they mentioned roughly 250 per session ie Jan and July. It sky rocketed for a couple of years

@Donal - apologies for any confusion. I meant to infer that no soft copies on their own can be accepted. It has to be a hard copy application with soft copy included as back up.
