The announcement on 5 August, follows on from working with IET since the first students arrived in the Department in 2018 and, more recently, virtual visits from IET members. The satisfactory assessment by the IET accreditation panel involved a review of the department’s staffing, facilities, industrial links, teaching curriculum and learning outcomes against internationally defined standards of quality and academic rigour.

Head of Engineering, Professor Neil Mansfield said,

I am delighted with our accreditation success. It demonstrates that what we teach and how we teach it is relevant to developing engineers of the future. We were pleased that IET commended us for our annual Grand Challenge, where students work closely with industry during an intensive three-week project.”

Accredited status means that our graduates fulfil the educational requirements for registering as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) following a period of employment. The IET accreditation is valid until August 2026 and is also backdated to our first BEng and MEng student cohorts who graduated in 2020 and 2021.
