Would you like professional registration as a fire engineer? The IFE is licensed by the Engineering Council and, if you are appropriately qualified and experienced, you could be registered as a Chartered Engineer, an Incorporated Engineer or an Engineering Technician. If you have recently graduated and want recognition of your qualifications whilst you build your experience as a fire engineer, you could become an Interim registrant.
For more information on benefits of professional registration check out the Engineering Council’s video ‘What’s in it for me?‘ and a video of Dr Barbara Lane CEng MIFireE an Arup Fellow talking about why fire engineering is so important.
