Technical Report

 If your qualifications are not accredited for IEng or CEng then your application will be submitted to our academic panel for assessment. Having reviewed your qualifications the panel may decide that you need to undertake further learning. This may be in the form of an additional academic qualification or vocational training. Alternatively, you might be given the option of producing a technical report as a means of demonstrating your knowledge.

What is a technical report?

A written report designed to demonstrate that you’ve acquired a thorough understanding of engineering principles by working within the gas sector and undertaking vocational training.

What should I write about?

Your report can be on any technical subject that you choose. The academic panel may provide guidance as to the knowledge and understanding that your technical report must demonstrate based upon the details of your qualifications.


You will then be required to prepare a 500 word synopsis detailing the proposed subject matter for your technical report before you begin writing the full report. This will need to be approved by our academic panel.

How long is a technical report?

The length of report required will vary depending on the qualification(s) you hold. 

Help with preparing a technical report

We recognise that being asked to prepare and submit a technical report can be daunting, which is why we provide lots of help and support along the way.

We can send you examples of technical reports, you might like to attend one of our technical report option workshops or you may wish to use an IGEM approved mentor who can discuss your technical report synopsis and provide advice and support through to submission of your final report.

If you would like to request technical report example or the support of a mentor please contact us. We will do our best to match you with an individual who has knowledge or experience of the subject matter of your proposed technical report and, if possible is within a reasonable travelling distance.
