We had 18 registered CTPDs
as Engineering Designer went to press, which is excellent.
Short term, I am looking forward to welcoming our first CTPD from outside the membership of the IED, as external applications are now open.

MIED FRSA reveals her personal take on the world of design engineering
The IED offers a pathway to recognise this hard work and expertise through its Triple Crown of Charterships': CEng, CEnv and CTPD.
CTPD recognises this intersection and the professionalism of leaders making these connections to meet some of the world's most pressing challenges in a sustainable way.
These have now been reviewed and I must say that the standard has been excellent--and, when used as benchmarks for future applications, will greatly help in making CTPD a winner.
I am extremely pleased to announce that Lyndon Buck of Buckinghamshire New University and Caroline Simcock of Dyson are the first to be awarded CTPD.
GYM has been invited to observe the last Council meeting, was involved in the assessment and award of the first CTPD
accreditations, and had direct input into the potential journal redesign.
The latter (just six weeks later) is the date when the first two ever Chartered Technological Product Designers were registered and formally conferred with the title CTPD.
CTPD is a unique Chartership specifically for those who work in Product Design.
Such Registrants shall be entitled to use the post-nominal CTPD
while they remain on the Register.
