In order to be recognised as a professional engineer or technician, you must meet the requirements of UK-SPEC (UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence). The standard covers various topics in which you need to demonstrate knowledge and competence.

One of these topics is project planning. The IMechE Library offers over 60,000 online resources that can help support members to meet the requirements of UK-SPEC. These are some of the best titles we have on project planning.
