To apply, use the career break points, flowcharts and forms listed above. You won’t be required to write a detailed report, attach proof of attended courses or create a Development Action Plan.

IEng and CEng applicants must have a Professional Review Interview with our panel of peers to discuss your achievements. They will then make a recommendation towards professional registration as an IEng or a CEng.
