Does my degree fit?


We want to make it as easy as possible for you to demonstrate your Masters level learning.

To become a Chartered Member you will need to demonstrate Masters level learning. You can do that in a number of ways.

 
You have an accredited MEng degree:

You satisfy the Institution’s academic requirements. When you demonstrate you have completed your Initial Professional Development (IPD) you can apply for Professional Review.

 
You have a BEng (Hons) degree partially accredited for Chartered Membership:

When you show you have completed your IPD you can demonstrate your Masters level learning by passing the Chartered Membership exam - part of your Professional Review.

 
You have an accredited BEng (Hons) degree partially accredited for Chartered Membership and an accredited MSc degree: 

You satisfy the Institution’s academic requirements. When you demonstrate you have completed your IPD you can apply for Professional Review.

 

You have a Washington Accord or FEANI recognised degree:

You have achieved learning outcomes at least equivalent to a BEng (Hons) degree partially accredited for Chartered Membership. When you demonstrate you have completed your IPD you can apply for Professional Review.

Remember, you can demonstrate your Masters level learning by passing the Chartered Membership exam.

 
Your degree is not recognised by the Washington Accord or FEANI:

Your qualification will need to be assessed by our Academic Qualifications Panel. If it is found to be equivalent to a BEng (Hons) degree that is partially accredited for Chartered Membership (or above) you’ll be eligible to demonstrate you have completed your IPD and apply for Professional Review.

Remember, you can demonstrate your Masters level learning by passing the Chartered Membership exam.

 

What is an accredited degree?

A degree in civil or structural engineering from a university course accredited through the Joint Board of Moderators, or an IStructE-approved equivalent. 

 
What is a recognised degree?

Your degree is recognised by the FEANI database or the Washington Accord.

 
Unsure about your academic qualifications?

Contact the membership team with the details of the degree you studied, including the course name, university name and dates of study. If appropriate we will submit your qualification for assessment. 

The fee for academic assessment is £155.

If your qualifications are not of an equivalent level we will advise you how to make up the difference through further learning, eg additional formal study, sitting the Chartered Membership exam or via the Technical Report Route.
