Higher Diploma in Engineering in Civil Engineering

The registered professional title of Chartered Engineer (CEng) is becoming very important for graduate civil engineers.

The increasing regulation of the construction industry and the requirement to have competent engineering professionals (i.e. Chartered Engineers) to sign off on construction and civil engineering projects has led to employers seeking graduates who can reach Chartered Engineer status quickly.

Research has shown that the employment and salary prospects of Chartered Engineers are significantly improved in comparison to an untitled engineer.
