From better career prospects and higher earning potential to demonstrating your commitment to professional standards and ethical practice, becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng) demonstrates your level of skills and knowledge within the profession. As a CEng registrant, your credentials will be respected internationally, as well as offer you the opportunity to actively get involved with the wider engineering community to develop and shape the industry.
The first stage in the process is to submit an initial assessment. This can be completed here. CIHT will confirm the options available to you in an initial assessment outcome e-mail. Further information about some of the routes to professional registration can be found below.
If you have one of the following, you already have the qualifications you need for CEng and can proceed directly to Professional Review.

This option may be available to you if your academic qualification is of the required level – MEng or MSc for CEng - but is not accredited by the Engineering Council or you have completed your academic qualification(s) overseas.
If you are a citizen of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) who is qualified to practice as an Engineer in your home EU/EEA Member State, then you may apply for CEng, IEng or EngTech registration in the UK under the provisions of EU Directive 2005/36/EC, as amended by Directive 2013/55/EC.
