Our Engineering Council licence

Date published

We are one of 36 professional engineering institutions licensed by the Engineering Council to award professional registration.

The Engineering Council is the UK regulatory body for the engineering profession.

Our licence allows us to include our professionally qualified members on the Council's national register of professional engineers and technicians. 

We encourage all members to become professionally registered with one of the following professional titles:


Chartered Engineer (CEng) - appropriate for Chartered Members (FIStructE, MIStructE, AIStructE)

• Incorporated Engineer (IEng) - appropriate for Associate-Members (AMIStructE)

• Engineering Technician (EngTech) - appropriate for Technician Members (TIStructE)


We collect the relevant registration and annual fees on behalf of the Engineering Council.

We also share the details of relevant members with the Engineering Council, allowing them to be added to the register and issued with a registration number.

If you'd like to learn more about professional registration contact the membership team.
