Membership exams

If you apply for Chartered or Associate-Membership you will need to sit an exam which assesses your suitability for the MIStructE and AMIStructE designations.

Our membership exams are seven hours long. They are demanding tests of your competence, designed to ensure that our AMIStructE and MIStructE designations remain highly regarded around the world as the mark of professional and technical excellence.

There are lots of useful ways to prepare for your exams, including consulting past papers, reading tips from successful candidates, and attending exam preparation courses.
