Qualifications in similar areas may be acceptable but would have to be assessed as equivalent by IAgrE

Many applicants wishing to register with the Engineering Council (EngC) have qualifications that were not originally accredited by the EngC. If your qualification is not fully accredited by the Engineering Council, the IAgrE Membership Committee will assess your academic achievements for CEng, IEng or EngTech registration, and either accept them or recommend a route to registration.

The academic assessment is recommended for the following:
  • Individuals with UK or overseas engineering qualifications which are not accredited (or recognised under international accords)
  • Individuals who have qualifications that fall short of the exemplifying qualifications
  • Individuals who have qualifications in cognate subjects, or have no relevant qualifications
If any of the categories above are relevant to you, you can apply for assessment when you apply to become a member of IAgrE.
