Who can become a Chartered Engineer?
Anyone who meets the competence and responsibility standards can become a Chartered Engineer.
Network Managers, traffic engineers, transport planners, highway designers and project managers are all examples of typical Chartered level positions.
Many will have an accredited BEng (Hons) + MSc or accredited MEng degree. Others will have gained the necessary skills, knowledge and experience via a non-academic route through practical experience in the highways industry.
How to apply
To gain Engineering Council registration, engineers and technicians prove their competence and commitment in a Professional Review of their portfolio submission to the IHE.

What if my qualifications are not covered in the guidance?
If your qualifications or experience are not covered in the guidance document you may still be suitable to apply for CEng. You should ask the IHE for an individual Career Assessment. Your documents will then be put to the IHE Academic Standards Panel for consideration by engineering or academic professionals. They will either confirm your eligibility or provide you with feedback and guidance on the best route for you to achieve CEng registration.
What if I studied overseas?
If you have studied overseas, a UK ENIC Statement of Comparability that covers your degree should enable you to study via the Recognised Qualifications Route. You should contact UK ENIC directly, and obtain a Statement of Comparability yourself before making your application. More information on this can be found by visiting the UK ENIC website at: https://www.enic.org.uk/Qualifications/SOC
