  Engineeing len! on he Vi ae Re!eache De$elopmen Fame%ok and heEngineeing Co#ncil'! UK S andad fo Pofe!!ional Engineeing Compe ence Researcher DevelopmentFramework Wha i! hi! len!? This lens is for researchers in engineering and technology who aspire to achieveChartered Engineer (CEng) status. It provides a bridge between the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and the competence and commitment standard for CEngstatus that is set out in UK-SPEC 1 , published by the Engineering Council. The CEng title is awarded to those who can demonstrate the requirementspublished in UK-SPEC, and the assessment process includes a review of submitteddocumentary evidence. Evidence can be derived from a range of sources, for example research, managing research contracts, industry-related activity, taughtmodules and public engagement. This lens demonstrates the strong link betweenthe UK-SPEC requirements for CEng and the development of an engineeringresearcher’s knowledge, understanding, skills, competence and attributes. It isintended to help researchers to make these links and assist them in identifyingelements of their research activity that could demonstrate CEng competence. It canalso be used as a professional development tool/planner to identify further areas of development. Gathering evidence around Phases 2 and 3 in the RDF will help indemonstrating CEng competence. Wh& become egi! eed a! a Cha eed Enginee? Having CEng after your name carries considerable prestige. Itdemonstrates thatyou have achieved the high standards of competence and commitment that arerequired for this internationally recognised professional title. It sets you out as a key player in the world of engineering and technology, makes your skills moremarketable in an international environment and commands respect from industry. Ho% o become egi! eed? If you don’t already belong to a professional engineering institution, then joining oneis the first step on the way to achieving CEng status. A list of engineering institutionsthat are licensed to assess candidates for registration is available atwww.engc.org.ukInstitutions are usually able to put you in touch with a mentor who will support youthrough the registration process. You need to plan and document the developmentof your skills and competence for CEng. The lens over the page will help you tomake the link between what you do as a researcher and the UK-SPEC standard for CEng registration. O$e$ie% The Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF)underpins a major new approachto developing world-classresearchers. The framework hasbeen developed by and for researchers working in higher education as an aid to planning,promoting and enhancingprofessional and career development. It articulates theknowledge, behaviours andattributes of successfulresearchers and encourages all researchers to realise their potential.This is one of a series of lenseson the Vitae Researcher Development Framework. For further information about theVitae Researcher DevelopmentFramework visit www.vitae.ac.uk/rdf  For further information about theUK Standard for ProfessionalEngineering Competence(UK-SPEC) published by theEngineering Council visit www.engc.org.uk/ukspec Supporting materials relating to this lens are available at www.vitae.ac.uk/rdflenses 1 UK-SPEC is available to download: www.engc.org.uk/ukspec The Engineeing Co#ncil This engineering lens has been developed byVitae and the Engineering Council. The Engineering Council is the UK regulatorybody for the engineering profession, responsiblefor setting and maintaining internationallyrecognised standards of professionalcompetence and ethics, and holding theRegisters of professionally qualified engineersand technicians.Licences are granted by the Engineering Councilto discipline-specific professional engineeringinstitutions, allowing them to assess candidatesfor inclusion on its register of professionalengineers and technicians, and to accreditacademic programmes and professionaldevelopment schemes. To gain CEng status, you must be a member of a licensed professionalengineering institution, who will act as theawarding body for your registration.For further information about the EngineeringCouncil see www.engc.org.uk Information about CEng registration is availablesee www.engc.org.uk/ceng UK-SPEC fo Cha eed Enginee  Chartered Engineers are characterised by their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering problems, using new or existingtechnologies, through innovation, creativity and change. This might involvedeveloping and applying new technologies, promoting advanced design anddesign methods, introducing new and more efficient production techniques,marketing and construction concepts, or pioneering new engineering services and management methods.There are five headline competence and commitment standards for Chartered Engineers:  Use a combination of general and specialist engineering knowledge and understanding to optimise the application of existing and emergingtechnology  Apply appropriate theoretical and practical methods to the analysis andsolution of engineering problems  Provide technical and commercial leadership  Demonstrate effective interpersonal skills  Demonstrate a personal commitment to professional standards, recognisingobligations to society, the profession and the environmentEach is further explained with exemplar activities at: www.engc.org.uk/ukspec “ The RDF ‘engineering lens’ will be a very useful tool.It will certainly be of interest to both researchers andpotential employers in understanding the set of skills andcompetencies of professional engineers. ” Daniela BultocSkills Development Programme Manager, Graduate School, University College London 2 www.vitae.ac.uk/rds 3 www.vitae.ac.uk/rdfconditionsofuseTo protect and maintain the integrity of the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and the Researcher Development Statement (RDS) 2 and to ensure aconsistent approach to the development of lenses on the RDF, anyone wishing to create a lens on the RDF should seek permission from Vitae, and must adhereto the RDF Conditions of Use 3 .
