Technicians and Professional Registration

EngTech and Professional Registration through the Nuclear Institute

 A greater number of professionally registered technicians will help to raise the perception of engineering as a worthwhile career. This should increase the pool of talent and boost the quality of engineers in the UK, helping to strengthen the engineering profession’s prospects for long-term stability and sustained growth.

Engineering Technicians (EngTechs) solve practical engineering problems. They are professionals with supervisory or technical responsibility, and apply safe systems of working. They contribute to the design, development, manufacture, commissioning, decommissioning, operation or maintenance of products, equipment, processes or services.

The crucial period for encouraging EngTech and professional registration among aspiring technicians is during the final stages of their education and apprenticeships, and in the early years of their first full-time jobs. 

Professionalism is your route to career progression as a technician

The Nuclear Institute holds a licence from the Engineering Council to register professionals as Engineering Technicians
