Academic Accreditation


Academic accreditation relates to individual programmes (not departments or institutions), which are accredited to ensure they meet the high standards set by the profession. In the UK standards are set by the Engineering Council and Science Council for the relevant areas as regulatory bodies for their profession. Graduates from an accredited degree programme will have achieved part or all of the underpinning knowledge for later professional registration.

A full list of accredited courses will be available shortly, in the mean time please feel free to check the Engineering Council Database ACAD

Accredited Academic Courses


Professional Development Scheme Accreditation

Accreditation of a Professional Development Scheme proves a standard of support and guidance provided to employees aiming to achieve chartered status.  Schemes must be well thought out, structured, managed and resourced to achieve accreditation.

Accreditation Process

Accreditation can only be granted to an organisation on the basis of peer review. This entails information being provided to the Institute, followed by a formal visit by a panel of trained individuals supported by a member of the Accreditation Team.
