Jazeel Chukkan (MWeldI CEng), Welding Institute Member and TWI Structural Integrity Engineer and Fatigue Integrity Management (FIM) Project Leader, recently achieved his Chartered Engineer status with the Engineering Council and Welding Institute, therefore advancing to MWeldI status with the Institute.
Joining The Welding Institute in 2016 as an Associate Interim Chartered Engineer (AWeldI Interim, CEng) Jazeel achieved his Member (MWeldI) and Chartered Engineer (CEng) status earlier this week.
Jazeel joined TWI in 2018, working within the FIM section. Prior to his time with TWI, he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Welding Engineering. Jazeel is also a former TWI Innovation Network NSIRC student and completed his PhD on the effects of cyclic load on residual stress redistribution in welded structures with Coventry University and TWI in 2019.
Speaking on his recent achievement with The Welding Institute about the reasons why he chose to gain Professional Membership and Registration, Jazeel explained:
“I knew I possessed the competence and commitment to the professional standard set by the Engineering Council and I wanted to demonstrate this to my employer and clients. Also, I believe Chartered status can benefit my career progression. These motivated me to become professionally registered as a Chartered Engineer."
“I have been working in the field of welding and joining for the last 7 years. From my past experience I am well aware that The welding Institute is the leading welding and joining institution that offers professional registration. Various events hosted by The Welding Institute, such as webinars, technical talks and volunteer activities in the field of welding and joining, impressed me and pushed me to choose to gain professional registration with The Welding Institute.”
