Building Your Career

As part of IMechE, you’ll receive on-going support for your professional development and career planning – whether you’re an apprentice or a senior engineer.

Career Development

We’re here to help you, but it’s ultimately up to you to manage your own development. We offer a selection of tools, like our Career Developer, so you can record your initial engineering experiences and your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).




Find out more about our two routes to professional registration – the Monitored Professional Development Scheme (MPDS) and the Supported Registration Scheme (SRS).



Career skills and competences

Organisations want to know if you can develop and thrive in their environment.

Having employability skills will help you to stand out from the competition.


Careers Service

Boost your career opportunities in Engineering. ‘Career services’ is designed to help you explore the options and prospects available across the range of engineering disciplines and industry sectors. 


Career paths

You should continue to keep and update your career plan. 



Competence framework

We've developed these competence profiles to provide you with some guidance.



What forms do I need?

All your MPDS and SRS registration forms, plus guidance notes can be found here.



Completed MPDS

Once you have completed your MPDS and had your final annual assessment signed off by your mentor, you can submit your application for Membership and professional registration.



Looking for an independent mentor?

Not on MPDS/SRS and looking for impartial guidance in your career or advice on becoming professionally registered? Let us find you an independent mentor.
