A commitment to professional technicians

13 April 2012

The Institute of Water has joined other professional bodies licensed by the Engineering Council in making a commitment to technicians of the future, in recognition of their importance to society and the economy of the UK.

Four engineers from across the water industry have recently attained Engineering Technician status through the Institute of Water:

Steven Draper, Project Manager, Infrastructure Gateway
Ian Applegarth, Technical Support Adviser, Northumbrian Water Ltd
Jamie Mulroy, Technical Support Adviser, Northumbrian Water Ltd
Ian Simpson, Senior Engineer, Mouchel

Ian Simpson has 38 years’ project management, engineering and construction experience in the design, construction, installation and commissioning of water and waste water projects and is currently on secondment to Scottish Water. Ian said:

“Having worked in the water and wastewater industry for almost 39 years, in both Public and Private Sector Organisations, I have obtained a vast array of knowledge and experience throughout my career journey to date.

“Registration as Engineering Technician has provided me with recognition of my career achievements and further supports my knowledge and experience in the water and wastewater industry. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone working in the Water Industry whatever their age taking the time to consider and document your career achievements to date. This will form the initial approach to having your professional efforts recognised against the Engineering Council criteria for registration as an Engineering Technician.”

David Williams, a Civils Pipeline Designer at Dwr Cymru Welsh Water was recently awarded Incorporated Engineer Status.

David is an experienced design manager who has worked in the UK water industry for over 30 years, largely in the field of water network and trunk main design. His current role covers raw water mains cleansing schemes, design of new trunk mains, water mains diversions and highway improvement diversions. David, who has an ONC in Construction and an HNC in Civil Engineering is keen to attain CEng status so decided to go through the Professional Review process of Report and Interview first for IEng. With 30 years’ experience it was no surprise that David was able to demonstrate the levels of competence and commitment required from an Incorporated Engineer.
