The proposed merger of three engineering institutions will strengthen the BCS' role as the professional body for the IT industry, the society has said.

The BCS has given "a warm welcome" to the proposed merger of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, the Institution of Incorporated Engineers and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

"The merger will provide a focal point for the traditional engineering profession that will complement perfectly the role of the BCS as the representative body for the IT profession," said BCS president John Ivinson.

"The result will be distinctive voices for the engineering and IT professions.

"There is no doubt that rationalisation is required among traditional engineering professional institutions, as there is a large degree of crossover of professional representation. In many sectors common to all three institutions in the proposed merger, engineering is increasingly multi-disciplinary."
