Register as an Engineer

IHEEM holds a licence from the Engineering Council to register suitably qualified and experienced engineers as Engineering Technician, Incorporated Engineer and Chartered Engineer.   Such registrants are entitled to use the designatory letters EngTech, IEng or CEng as appropriate.

Engineering is all around us, satisfying everything from our basic needs to our more complex dreams and ambitions.  The engineers and technicians who make this possible enjoy contributing to teams through technical endeavour to sustain and improve lives. They possess an incredible range of creative talent that is underpinned by their enquiring minds and balanced by their intellect and judgement.   Society rightly places great faith in the engineering profession, trusting engineers and technicians to regulate themselves on its behalf. This trust can only be delivered through significant individual commitment that is publicly demonstrated by the attainment of the professional competence and behaviours that are described in this Standard.   The men and women who aspire to be recognised as professional engineers and technicians require independent assessment of their competence and commitment, UK-SPEC provides the means to achieve this.
