Dr. Daniel Oerther, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, was registered as a Chartered Engineer by the Engineering Council of the United Kingdom. Chartered Engineer, identified through the regulated use of the post nominal CEng, is a protected title in the UK reserved for the pinnacle of professional engineering recognition.
Additional protected titles in the UK include Engineering Technician (EngTech) and Incorporated Engineer (IEng). Oerther achieved this registration through examination by a panel of Chartered Engineers of the UK Society of Environmental Engineers. The standard for obtaining the designation of CEng includes developing solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change; and demonstrating technical accountability for complex systems with significant levels of risk. Oerther sought registration as a CEng to support his partnerships with firms in the UK and the British Overseas Territories, including within the Caribbean.
