If you are registered at CEng, IEng or EngTech level through another professional engineering institution licensed by the Engineering Council, you can apply to transfer your registration to CIHT so that you pay your annual Engineering Council registration fee through CIHT in future.

We recommend that you do not resign your membership of your current institution until you have received confirmation from CIHT that your application to transfer your registration has been successful.
