Chartered Member - academic requirements

Candidates wishing to apply for Chartered Membership should hold an Institution accredited MEng degree (normally 4 years full time or the equivalent). Those holding a BEng (Hons) degree can also apply, but a period of Further Learning must also be demonstrated e.g. through an accredited MSc degree, via the Institution’s Technical Report Route or completion of the Institution's Chartered Membership Examination.

International agreements

Candidates holding a degree in structural and/or civil engineering recognised under an international agreement i.e. FEANI currently meet the academic requirements for Chartered membership.

Note that FEANI accredited degrees must be 5 years in duration to meet the academic requirements for Chartered membership.

Applicants whose academic qualifications are not accredited or recognised under an agreement may apply for the Institution's academic assessment.
