Professional Engineering recognition for the UK

How do,

Not sure if people have seen this petition regarding the use of the description Engineer in the UK. In essence it is suggesting the German system whereby Engineer is a description of a job where, like doctors and lawyers, qualification and accreditation are required to use it.

It's one of these words that's rather lost its meaning and I think giving it some professional standing would be a good thing. If you do too, please sign the above.

cheers,

aca.
