We are working with the IET to both acknowledge the level of professionalism within our technical staff and to highlight to our staff, the activity that occurs within the wider global engineering and technological community.

As a result, we have 17 engineers and technicians who are now registered with the IET in order to gain a range of professional qualifications and work towards becoming chartered.

Chris Burke, Executive Director at Morson Projects, shared:

“This is an important partnership for Morson Projects, as we continue to grow and develop our own talent within the team. Something we are proud to have been very successful at over the past 40 years.

“Importantly for us, the IET’s values align closely to ours as we look to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering and technology community to engineer a better world.”

Howard Morrison, Software Systems Manager at Morson Projects who has signed up to join the programme shared:

“I started at Morson Projects in 2016, having emigrated from South Africa. Initially I was engaged as a contractor for the automation of a new Waste to Energy plant, but once my role changed to one of leading a team I accepted a staff position. In this time we have successfully deployed projects in Waste to Energy, Power Generation, Road Traffic Management and Rail Power Distribution.

“IET registration is, for me, about the recognition of skills that I have crafted over the last 12 years of delivering projects in industry. Through joining the programme I intend to become a Chartered Engineer, befitting of my role and experience in heading up a team of engineers delivering automation and control projects in a variety of industries.

“The IET are the benchmark for professional registration in our field of engineering and professional registration gives our customers the confidence that they are dealing with engineers who strive to better themselves, and in doing so improve industry as a whole.

“At Morson Projects we are fortunate to have wonderful in-house IET mentors to help us along our journey. The imparting of knowledge and skills from our senior engineers is what ensures the consistency and continuation of quality project delivery.

“My ambition is to complete the requirements for CEng / MIET and offer my support in enabling all the young engineers in our team to achieve the level of professional registration to which they aspire.”
