CABE formally became a Licensed Member of the Engineering Council in January 2020, this affords CABE the highest level of recognition of engineering bodies globally, having both a royal charter to grant the title Chartered Building Engineer and now the option for members to add the additional CEng registration if they wish. CEng is the most recognised engineering title globally and links the Association, its members and partners to the Washington, Sydney and Dublin accords affording members the recognition from professionals across borders in countries around the world.
We are sure you will join us in wishing Mr Sze and Ms Sie success in their new roles.
