Certare Ingenio

Use skills to the best of one's abilities

Welcome to the website of The Worshipful Company of Engineers, one of the 31 ‘modern’ livery companies in the City of London formed in the last 80 years.

We are a fellowship of leading engineers (and partners) who meet, socialise and exchange cross-disciplinary thinking at prestigious city venues and support the Engineers Trust in its educational, engineering excellence, and charitable objectives.

Our members are all Chartered Engineers or Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering, and are from all the professional disciplines of engineering, technology and business. Liverymen of the Company are Fellows at least one of the Professional Engineering Institutions.

The Company works to promote and develop all aspects of the science, art and practice of engineering within a social and charitable ethos which is at the core of the Livery movement. This website should provide you with information about our activities. For any further information or for comments on the website content, please do not hesitate to contact the Engineers’ Office.

The Final Report of the Review Team established by the Government, and chaired by Liveryman Dame Judith Hackitt, following the Grenfell Tower fire has been published today, 17 May 2018.   The Review’s purpose was to make recommendations that will ensure, first, a sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future and secondly, that residents feel that the buildings they live in are safe and remain so.   An interim report was published in December 2017.   The Review has examined building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement with the focus on multi-occupancy high-rise residential buildings.   A copy may be found here.
