The Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) is a professional Society that exists to promote awareness of the discipline of environmental engineering, and to provide members of the Society with information, training and representation within this field. The Society is a Charity and as such the trustees’ annual report must include: (i) a report in the examined annual accounts, of the activities undertaken by a charity to further its charitable purposes for the public benefit and (ii) a statement by the charity trustees as to whether they have considered the Charity Commission’s guidance on public benefit. The Society Trustees, in studying the Charity Commission’s guidelines, consider that the objects of The Society align directly with the public benefit requirements whilst at the same time providing members with, among other things, opportunities to support their engineering careers, obtain registration as Professional Engineers and have their CPD monitored as well as being able to use a forum for technical interchange (e.g. virtual groups). All of these activities are vital to the development of individual engineers and add to the total skill base and commitment of the members for the public good. See also the section ABOUT US.

This is an online professional development system and is aligned with the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) for EngTech, ICTTech, IEng and CEng, as well as other registration grades your institution may offer. You can measure and track your progress against the competence statements for the category of registration you are working towards. Records can then be sent to your institution as part of the professional review process. Engineers and technicians who have attained professional registration can continue to use to record their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This service can help our Members work towards professional registration.
