Review Entries for Day Tuesday, August 25, 2009

I welcome the joint report produced by fellows of The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE), The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and The British Computer Society (BCS) entitled: "Engineering Values in IT", which was published on 3rd August 2009 and is available from the academy's web site.

The report recommends that "appropriately qualified Chartered Engineers (CE) and Chartered IT Professionals (CITP) should be employed to lead and manage major IT projects within both government and industry."

I sense that, in particular, Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status is a qualification whose time is now rapidly approaching. I’ve noted over recent months that many IT professionals in senior positions have recently been awarded chartered status.

It is a necessarily hard qualification to achieve and is certainly on a par with those in other chartered professions, such as Chartered Accountants or Chartered Surveyors.

The motivation for the report was the critical importance of IT at a national level.

The report notes that the take up of chartered status within information technology remains a problem. I certainly think that those who have attained the CITP qualification should make it clear that they are "Chartered IT Professionals", since I believe that this will accelerate its adoption.
