IOM3 Accreditation is the formal recognition of academic programmes and company development schemes. Programmes are accredited in line with Engineering Council and Science Council requirements or can be IOM3 Certified.
IOM3 currently accredits a large number of programmes at more than 25 universities across the UK and abroad along with a number of company-based professional development schemes helping those working towards registration.
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.
You can search on the Engineering Council degree programmes database for accredited materials and other courses.
Professional Development Scheme Accreditation
Accreditation of a Professional Development Scheme proves a standard of support and guidance is provided to employees aiming to achieve chartered status. Schemes must be well thought out, structured, managed and properly resourced to achieve accreditation.
If you're interested in accreditation of your company scheme, please contact us.
This is an exciting new process aimed towards programmes that do not qualify for Engineering or Science Council Licensed Accreditation and will be available at the end of 2020.
