The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), one of the world’s leading professional societies for engineers and technicians, has awarded professional accreditation to three courses at London Met.
The accredited courses are Electronics and Communications Engineering BEng; Computer Systems Engineering BEng; and Computer Networking BEng.
A panel of expert accreditors evaluated the degree programme content and delivery, including its relevance, coherence, staffing and resources and were satisfied London Met’s courses met the IET’s stringent requirements.
Professor Bal Virdee, Professor of Microwave Technology at London Metropolitan University, said: “Our students benefit from IET accredited courses as it helps improve graduate employability, ensuring that the students have developed the appropriate skills and knowledge for an engineering career and professional registration.”
“This accreditation reflects the relevance, coherence, high-quality content and delivery of our courses as assessed by their professional accreditation team”, said Dr Sheelaugh Heugh, Head of Student Experience and Academic Outcomes.
“For our students, this helps improve their employability by developing the appropriate skills and knowledge necessary for professional registration and engineering careers. I am incredibly proud of the staff and students in showing the IET their professionalism and enthusiasm in attaining this recognition.”
Professor Virdee and the rest of the team will now begin preparations to have the three new courses accredited in three years time when the first cohort of students have graduated. These courses are Electronics and Internet of Things BEng; Computer Systems Engineering and Robotics BEng; and Computer Networking and Infrastructure Security BEng.
