Professional Registration

Engineers who are professionally registered with the Engineering Council as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech) gain letters (post-nominals) after their name. Professional registration can increase your earnings potential, improve your career prospects and attain industry recognition for your years of experience, expertise and hard work.

You can join the relevant IHE grade based on experience or academic qualifications but if you would like to achieve Engineering Council registration levels, you will also need to go through a Professional Review.

IHE’s fair but rigorous professional review by your peers proves your professional commitment and technical competence. Our review process comprises a report of your experience backed up by evidence and presented at an interview with two registered engineers if you’re applying for CEng or IEng. There is normally no interview for EngTech. There are also Individual routes to all registered titles.

IHE members have access to Professional Registration Guidance Documents which can be found in the members only section of the website.  If you have trouble logging in please email
