TWI Project Leader and structural integrity engineer, Jazeel Chukkan has been elected as a Member of The Welding Institute. His Welding Institute membership means that he is now able to carry the designatory letters MWeldI after his name.
The election committee also agreed that he possesses the willingness to maintain the skills, knowledge and commitment to uphold Engineering Council registration, and so also approved Jazeel’s registration as a Chartered Engineer. This means that he can now also carry the designatory letters CEng.
As a Member of The Welding Institute, Jazeel has become part of the leading international membership body for welding and joining professionals. The Institute is also unique in its ties to certification, training and TWI’s research and technology arm.
The Institute will also work to help Jazeel, like other technicians and engineers, to improve his career while promoting professionalism and seeking knowledge in welding, joining and allied technologies.
Jazeel joined TWI in 2018, where he has been working in our Fatigue Integrity Management team. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Welding Engineering. After achieving his qualifications, Jazeel worked on the numerical simulation of laser welding in steel sheets and undertook a PhD at the National Structural Integrity Research Centre, on the effect of cyclic load on residual stress redistribution in welded structures. His research was sponsored by Lloyd's Register Foundation.
Jazeel’s progression is a fine example of how TWI works to develop and encourage staff in their careers, while also demonstrating the expertise that we can draw upon to serve the needs of our Industrial Members.
