Incorporated Engineers (IEng) are professionals who maintain and manage applications of current and developing technology. As an Incorporated Engineer, you are likely to have both technical and commercial responsibility within your role and may work in engineering design, development, manufacture or construction and operation.
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 hold an accredited Bachelor's degree, you already have the qualifications you need for IEng and can proceed directly to Professional Review.
If your academic qualification(s) does not meet the academic benchmark, you will be required to demonstrate the required technical knowledge as those holding accredited qualifications by completing one of the following:
Three stage Technical Report
Further Learning Report
This option may be available to you if your academic qualification is of the required level – BEng or BSc for IEng - 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.

Only CIHT members at Member grade or above are eligible to apply for IEng registration. You can apply to become a member online by clicking here.
CIHT have updated the Professional Registration Guidance Notes (2019 version) which can be downloaded by clicking on the link in Step 2. If you are about to begin your journey to becoming professionally registered at IEng level, please ensure that you refer to this version and refrain from using an older version which you may have previously downloaded or received. The new single document provides greater clarity and ease of use for candidates so that the application process is as simple and stress-free as possible. Any templates or supporting documentation referred to in the 2019 Guidance Notes which you require as part of your application can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. Should you have any issues downloading any of the documentation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
N.B. Professional Review candidates preparing their Portfolio of Evidence should ensure that they download a copy of the IEng Gap Analysis Exercise in addition to the new version of Guidance Notes as this will help in relation to completing the UK-SPEC Evidence Forms.
