President, Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN),  Engr Ali Rabiu has disclosed that a total of 7,677 Nigerian engineers have been registered between March and December this year.

Rabiu who made this known during a briefing after the council’s last quarter meeting In Abuja, noted that 762 technologists were also registered during the period under review.

He also said 46 technicians, 95 craftsmen, 28 expatriates and 21 engineering firms got COREN registration this year.

According to him, 34 engineering programmes got full accreditation and 10 programmes had interim accreditation.

The president said it is compulsory for all engineering practitioners and engineering firms to be certified through the council’s registration and licensing processes as only registered engineering practitioners are permitted by law to hold senior engineering positions like head of engineering departments and units, and control of engineering projects.

He said the council would work with relevant stakeholders to reduce the incidents of building collapse in the country.
