Note: The Accreditation for Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) is a standard produced by the UK's Engineering Council to assess the competence and commitment of engineers and technicians. It is used by Higher Education institutions to achieve accreditation for their engineering programmes. Users outside the UK can refer to their national frameworks or other international competencies to map ethics learning accordingly.
