Examiners' Reports. Membership (Part 3) and Associate-Membership Examinations, April 1987

In 1987 both the Part 3 and the Associate-Membership examination reached a milestone in their development that expressed the Institution’s wish to examine its potential members in every way that can be seen to be at once needed and equitable. The Part 3 examination is recognised internationally as demanding a standard of proficiency second to none, and the Associate-Membership examination echoes this at its own appropriate level of competence. The dedication and industry of all the examiners ensure that these standards are never lowered, even though this may lead to the pass-rate dipping for a while, for the profession of structural engineering cannot admit of a lowering of the standards that are so vital in an era when the worldwide demand increasingly seeks innovation. This innovation must never be at the cost of safety and durability, or indeed of economy or elegance of form.
