Transforming accessibility to Chartered Membership for professionals around the world
Graduates wishing to become Chartered members of the Institution are required to demonstrate Masters Level learning. This may be gained through formal education e.g. an accredited MEng degree or through experiential learning tested by the Institution. Candidates must also pass the Professional Review Interview and 7-hour Chartered Membership (CM) Examination before election as a Chartered Structural Engineer.
The Institution has transformed accessibility to Chartered membership by confirming that candidates holding an accredited BEng (Hons)* degree may demonstrate their Master Level learning by passing the CM Examination. The Examination provides another option for candidates to demonstrate their Further Learning to Masters Level. In opening access to the CM Exam the Institution has removed the unnecessary duplication of assessment that had become part of the qualifying process.
*Bachelor with honours degree accredited as partially satisfying the academic requirements for Chartered membership.
The format and standard of our Interview and Exam remain unchanged as one of the most demanding assessments of knowledge and professional competence in the world.
