ENGINEERING AND DIGITAL ARTS


Accreditation and rankings

All of our engineering degree programmes are accredited by our professional body, the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

The Times Good University Guide, The Guardian University Guide, The Complete University Guide and the National Student Survey (NSS) continually rank us among the top schools in the UK for our degree programmes, standard and quality of teaching, as well as our commitment to enhancing our students’ employability.

Our accreditation

Engineering CouncilOur Engineering degrees have been accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Our accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Our programmes in Computer Systems Engineering and Electronic and Communications Engineering provide you with a broad grounding in these vital fields.

IETEngineering Programmes at Kent have been continuously accredited by the IET for 30 years. The School of Engineering and Digital Arts is an IET Academic Partner.

 

IETEDA is proud to be a member of the Engineering Professors' Council – Promoting Excellence in Engineering in Higher Education.
