Incorporated Engineer

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.
