IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS WISHING TO REGISTER WITH COREN THROUGH HND-PGD

In an announcement made on the council official website, the Council for the Regulations of Engineering in Nigeria will no longer register HND with PGD alone for engineer category.

The statement read

“After December 2021, applicants with HND and PGD will, in addition, have M.Eng. degree to Register with COREN as an Engineer.”

Thus any applicant with Higher National Diploma HND qualification will now be required to have Masters in addition to Postgraduate Diploma  PGD before he can register as engineer.

In the current system, an HND holder needs to have a postgraduate diploma in same course to be qualified to register as engineer.

COREN registers four categories of members: Engineers, technologist, technicians and craftsmen. The COREN Act as amended empowered COREN to regulate engineering profession in Nigeria in all ramifications

  1. Q1. What of an HBD holder with a PGD in information communication technology ICT, Can he or she register in this present situation?

  2. Q1,HND Electrical Electronics Engineering holder with PGD ICT , can he or she register in this present situation

    • Good day… You need to join NATE if your interest is Technologist. They have many chapters too.. we plan to do a complete feature on how to join NATE soon..but you can send us email or to get contact of their official.. indicate which state you are in your email

  3. Funny country. So there is no provision for HND with years of experience to be upgraded to become an engineer. This happens only in Nigeria where mediocrity is celebrated above productivity. No wonder we can not even produce pencil withou foreign interventions.

  4. So engineering bodies in Nigeria are now telling us that HND holders will not be recognize/registered as an engineer.
    Engineering is not about knowing it in book, but practically.
