Professional Registration

Individuals can apply and be assessed concurrently for professional grades of Institute membership with registration as a professional engineer, professional scientist and/or a professional environmentalist. Many apply for more than one registration at a time, which depends on their work experience and occupational competence, and career aspirations. The membership grades and levels of registration are coupled as follows:

Those applying to be a Fellow or Professional Member can also consider applying for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) with the Engineering Council, a Chartered Scientist (CSci) with the Science Council, and/or a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) with the Society for the Environment.

Applicants for Associate Member can also consider applying for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and/or Registered Scientist (RSci).

Applicants for Technician Member can also consider applying for Engineering Technician (EngTech) and/or Registered Science Technician (RSciTech).

Information on each level and type of registration, the respective eligibility criteria, competences that need to be satisfied through work experience, and the application process is detailed in full in the respective guide for the associated membership grade, e.g. those for CEng are given in the Professional Member guide, whilst those for RSci are given in the Associate Member guide.

The Guides can also be downloaded below or from each of the individual grade webpages, which can be accessed through the 'membership grade' link.
