The Engineering Council's UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) characterises Incorporated Engineers by their ability to 'maintain and manage applications of current and developing technology, and may undertake engineering design, development, manufacture, construction and operation.  Incorporated Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial management and possess effective interpersonal skills.' 
Achieving this professional peer recognition may be more straightforward than you think.

How do I become an Incorporated Engineer?

The first stage in the process is to submit a request for an initial assessment. All you need to do is click here.
There are two routes to IEng; the Standard Route and the Individual Route.

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.

What next?

When your educational base has been assessed and approved by CIHT, you may proceed to Professional Review. This involves submitting a Portfolio of Evidence and attending a Professional Review Interview to demonstrate that you have reached the IEng competence standard set by the Engineering Council.
