Royal Navy

If you are serving in the Royal Navy, or have left the service within the last 12 months, you can use our simplified route to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech).

Getting professionally registered

Not yet a member of an institution?

We have a table of Royal Navy career break points to help you decide which level of professional registration and membership is right for you.

Download the application form:

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

COVID-19 / Coronavirus: office closure

Please scan and email a signed copy of your application to the Endorser OR email in the PDF and take a photo on your phone of the signed pages and email all together.

Any hard copies posted since 13 March: please re-send as a digital copy  

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.

Want to upgrade your membership?

If you are already registered as a CEng, IEng or EngTech and a member (MIMechE) and you’re a Commander (or above) in the Fleet Air Arm or Marine Engineers, you can upgrade using a simplified process. Just fill out a Member to Fellow upgrade application form within 12 months of retiring from the Royal Navy.

If you haven’t yet attained the rank of Commander, but believe you meet the Fellowship criteria, you can apply via the traditional route.

Want to transfer your membership to us?

If you’re a CEng, IEng or EngTech registered with the Engineering Council through one of their approved institutions you can apply through our Armed Forces existing registrant process.
