Engineering Designers who are members can apply to have their names recorded on the Engineering Council Register as either Chartered Engineers (CEng), Incorporated Engineers (IEng) or Engineering Technicians (EngTech) depending on the level of their academic qualification. We will advise you if we feel that your application is not at the right level.

In addition to any one of these qualifications you will also need to demonstrate that you have three years' appropriate experience. Equivalents will be considered, including foreign qualifications, Full Tech Certs, or NVQs.
