Routes to Engineering Council Registration

Please review the Engineering Council’s Standard Route to Registration  route map. 

In order to gain registration, applicants must first join a professional engineering institution licensed by the Engineering Council.

The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) sets out the competence and commitment required for registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). It also includes examples of activities that demonstrate the required competence and commitment.

Any academic or vocational qualifications you hold will determine which route to registration is open to you:

Standard route 
This is for anyone with the relevant required approved qualifications or apprenticeships, or accredited academic qualifications.  It is the most straightforward route to each professional title as you need not supply any further evidence about your education. 

Individual route 
This is the route for those who do not hold the required approved or accredited qualification or apprenticeship. You will need to provide evidence of how you have achieved the same level of knowledge and understanding as a standard route applicant. There are various ways of achieving this and your institution will provide advice based on your individual circumstances once they have looked at your education and career history.

Interim Registration
Interim registration is a useful start to your journey towards gaining professional registration. It can give you an edge over other recently graduated engineers when applying for jobs. For full details click here

Please note: Engineering Council Registration is open to anyone who can demonstrate the required professional competences and commitment. These requirements are set out in Engineering Council UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) document, and are developed through your education and working experience.
