Chartered Engineer

Becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng) guarantees global professional recognition and the opportunity to work anywhere in the world.

High status is attached to the CEng qualification – it provides a measure of your skills and professionalism in the engineering community as well as showing your dedication to personal development. 
The Engineering Council's UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) characterises Chartered Engineers by 'their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering problems, using new or existing technologies, promote advanced designs and design methods, introduce new and more efficient production techniques, marketing and construction concepts, or pioneer new engineering services and management methods.  Chartered Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial leadership and possess effective interpersonal skills.'

Achieving this professional peer recognition may be more straightforward than you think.

How do I gain interim registration?

Interim registration is available to those who have obtained the academic base for either IEng or CEng, but do not yet possess the relevant practical experience to meet the competency requirements for full registration. Having interim registration will demonstrate to employers your enthusiasm, drive and commitment to both your career and the profession.
