25 Nov 10. BAE Systems, the Engineering Council and six of the
UK’s foremost engineering, science and technology institutions have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together to progress engineering training, development and professional registration programmes at BAE Systems in the UK. This is the first partnership which brings together so many engineering organisations committed to building the reputation of engineering and ensuring it is recognised for the role it plays in sustaining the UK’s economy. The six professional engineering institutions signing the MoU are the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Engineering and Technology, The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and the Royal Aeronautical Society. The MoU outlines activities for all parties including establishing a steering group for professional registration which will oversee activities. Each professional engineering institution will also seek to formally accredit BAE Systems graduate and apprentice training programmes as well as visiting BAE Systems sites to provide ongoing advice and guidance before engineers apply for professional registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
