A round-up of news provided by the Society to keep its members informed


With the SEE having to demonstrate to the Engineering Council that it is assessing its registrants’ CPD records, the Society’s initiative aims to smooth the process

From2018, itwill be necessary to demonstrate to the Engineering Council that the SEE is sampling and assessing CPD records for its registrants. A pilot of the arrangements for this is being undertaken this year. Thiswill involve asking all Council Members to provide CPD records. In addition, therewill be a

request to 5 per cent of our registrants (including those fromcollaborating institutions) to submit CPD records. These randomly selected registrants will be contacted directly in the next fewweeks, both to request their submissions and give guidance on the necessary hours/points required. The CPD records can be

submitted in paper or electronic formorwith the use ofMy Career Path. Links toMy Career Path are available fromour website home page (see address at end of story). The recordswill be peer

reviewed and scrutinised by CouncilMembers.

believes that adopting this approach across the engineering profession should help all registrants to plan and reflect upon their learning and development in amore consciousway, thus benefitting them, their employers and society.

The intention behind CPD sampling is to encourage members to engage in their own learning

The intention behind CPD

sampling is not to police registrants, but to encourage a culture inwhichmemberswill naturally engage in CPD and take ownership of their own learning and development. The Engineering Council

Recording evidence of CPD is

a requirement of professional registration. From1 January 2020, Engineering Council regulationswill change to mandate removal fromthe Register of individualswho persistently do not respond to or

engagewith requests for CPD records froma Licensed Member. There is no call to remove an individual fromthe register for submitting an unsatisfactory CPD record. Where submissions do not

showevidence of appropriate CPD or reflection, support from the LicensedMemberwould be offered rather than any sanction. Registrantswho are not

professionally active (e.g. retired or on a career break)may request exemption froma sample.

In July our CEOwas awarded the degree of DSc by City University of London in recognition of his career achievements. After graduating fromUMIST

inmechanical engineering in 1966, Raymond Clark started research for a PhD at City University and continued this work at the National Institute for Medical Research and theMRC Clinical Research Centre. His research followed two

specific paths. The first demonstrated that thermographically produced “temperaturemaps” varied in a predictableway in a range of different diseases and this led to a comprehensive set of methodologies for clinical diagnosis and treatment assessment.

The other area of researchwas

to developmethods to reduce the airborne transmission of disease in the built environment with application to the reduction of hospital acquired infections. In 1981, he developed a
