Chartered Engineers (CEng) are professional engineers who develop answers to engineering problems using new or existing technologies in creative and innovative ways.
You might be developing these technologies, promoting advanced designs and design methods, introducing new and more efficient production techniques or pioneering engineering services.
To become a CEng, you’ll need a Master’s Degree in Engineering (or equivalent). Or you’ll need a three-year accredited BEng (Hons) degree, along with an appropriate Master’s programme or period of further learning.
Formal academic qualifications aren’t the only way to demonstrate your level of knowledge and understanding. Please see the academic requirements page for more information.
As a Chartered Engineer, you can use the abbreviation ‘CEng MIMechE’ after your name. This designation is a globally recognised mark of professionalism and commitment to engineering.
Chartered Engineers can also apply for additional qualifications and international registrations, like Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) or European Engineer (EurIng).
CEng Members have access to all of our membership benefits, including networking at regional events, reduced rates for conferences and events, and discounted subscriptions to technical journals.

Each year, CEng Members pay a subscription fee and a registration fee, which are both due in January. Find out more about our fees here.
