If you have one of the following, you already have the qualifications you need for CEng:
  • An accredited four-year integrated MEng degree
  • A bachelor's degree which is accredited as CEng with further learning, plus an accredited master's degree
  • A course is accredited after the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) formally visits the university that offers the course.
These visits ensure that courses are at the right standard and that the college or university covers core subjects - such as materials, geotechnics, fluid mechanics and structures.

If you went to a UK university or college, simply search for your course on our online database and we'll tell you straightaway if it's accredited by Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).
You'll also find details of courses that are covered by international agreements like the Washington Accord, FEANI and EUR-ACE.

Don't worry, it doesn't mean that your qualifications won't count. We have another way of checking – by asking you to apply for an Academic Assessment.
Our panel of experts will assess your qualification against the Engineering Council's requirements and we'll let you know the result by email.
If your qualifications don't meet the requirements, we'll give you advice on how you can top them up, or suggest other ways for you to qualify.

Yes. If you have an accredited undergraduate degree – either a BEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) – you can become chartered.
But you'll need to do some 'further learning', or you can use the technical report route.
Further learning is the extra work you need to do to bring your education and experience up to the level for CEng.
You can do this in two ways:
Further learning in education – this means doing an accredited master's (MSc) course
Further learning at work – this involves adding to your knowledge in the workplace. You can do this with support from your employer (ask your employer if they offer an employer-managed further learning programme). If your employer doesn't have one, you can do it independently and we'll track your progress

Initial professional development (IPD) is where you develop the special skills, knowledge and experience that help you to become professionally qualified.
Your IPD is measured against a set of 'attributes', which you can achieve in three stages:
Knowledge – a basic understanding and knowledge of the attribute and how you achieve it
Experience – achieving the attribute in different situations, working under supervision
Ability – achieving the attribute in different situations, assisting others and working unsupervised

There are three key ways to complete your IPD:
  • ICE Training Scheme – this is a structured training programme run by your employer. You'll receive support and guidance throughout your training from a supervising civil engineer (SCE), who your employer assigns to you. We recommend you use this scheme to complete your IPD. You can find out more about it in our guidance document.
  • Mentor-supported Training – this is similar to the ICE Training Scheme but is not run by your employer. You're responsible for managing your own training with the support of a mentor, who'll need to be approved by ICE. You can find out more about it in our guidance document.
  • Career Appraisal – you do this if you've already got enough experience to complete your IPD. Find out more about career appraisals.

A Professional Review is the final stage in becoming professionally qualified.
This is where you prove that you’ve developed all the right skills to become professionally qualified.
The Professional Review itself is made up of three steps:
Initial application – this gives us the information we need to arange your Professional Review
Submission – you'll need to produce and submit a report of up to 5,000 words showing how you meet all the requirements to become an incorporated or chartered engineer and also your CPD records
Professional Review – you'll then be interviewed by experienced civil engineering professionals. Be prepared to discuss your report and show off your knowledge. You will also have to complete a written exercise which is an assessment of your written skills
