The engineering profession in the UK comprises all the individuals who work as engineers and technicians, all the professional bodies which support them, and the statutory documentation which underpins competence.
Statement on working together across the engineering profession
The professional engineering community is working together to address the global challenges of sustainability, ethics, and equity, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to innovating and improving across these societal challenges, within our organisations, and ensuring our members recognise the importance of these responsibilities alongside core professional competencies. As a self-regulated profession, we recognise the importance of public confidence that engineering is safe, sustainable, and inclusive to all in society.

Companies who work in the engineering sector, including suppliers and component manufacturers, provide the corporate elements of the profession. They are key to the development of engineers’ and technicians’ workplace skills, as well as creating the culture of global responsibility in which individuals work.
