You clean your teeth using the running water in your bathroom. Have a cup of tea or coffee. You travel to work on a finely constructed network of roads or on a train or underground system. You park your car or grab another cup of coffee at the train station before heading to the office. Civil engineers design and build bridges, roads, railways, and tunnels. Without civil engineers we wouldn’t have a constant supply of clean water, or sustainable energy to help us save our planet.

UK-SPEC - UK-SPEC The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) describes the value of becoming registered as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). It describes the requirements that have to be met in order to gain these qualifications, and gives examples of ways of doing this. UK-SPEC should enable individuals and employers to find out whether they or their staff can meet the requirements, and explains the steps necessary to achieve professional registration with the Engineering Council. Our registrants carry many responsibilities, including the need to observe a professional code of conduct. These are described here, together with advice on how to maintain registration. UK-SPEC is published by the Engineering Council on behalf of the UK engineering profession. The previous edition can be accessed via archived publications
