How to apply
You can become a member of the Institution whether you’re a student, apprentice, graduate, qualified engineer – or if you just have an interest in engineering.
Choose one of the following options to start your application.
There are three different registration types for professional engineers at Member (MIMechE) grade:
Chartered Engineers are professional engineers who develop answers to engineering problems using new or existing technologies in creative and innovative ways.
Incorporated Engineers are professional engineers who maintain, manage and apply current and developing technology. You might be working in fields like engineering design, development, manufacture, construction and operations.
EngTech is a level of professional registration exclusively for Engineering Technicians. Engineering Technicians are concerned with applying proven techniques and procedures to the solution of practical engineering problems.
If you are serving in the Armed Forces or the Ministry of Defence (MoD), you can use our simplified route to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech).
