Benefits of Professional Registration

Registering as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech) or ICT Technician (ICTTech) affords the following benefits:

  • Certified recognition of your competence and knowledge
  • Greater status and influence
  • Post-nominals – e.g. S Jones CEng, MITP
  • Higher earnings potential - up to £152,000 additional earnings in a career lifetime
  • Improved career prospects
  • Access life-long learning resources
  • Confirms your commitment to CPD

As a result, registrants often find that:

  • It is easier to gain promotion, or a new job.
  • Their pay compares favourably with unregistered engineers and increasingly against other qualified professionals.
  • They are more likely to be listened to, whether in the boardroom or the court their engineering credentials are respected in most parts of the world.
  • They have access to a network of similarly qualified and experienced experts in their field - through their Institution. Each Institution has been assessed by the Engineering Council as being capable of providing comprehensive professional development guidance and opportunities, with a regular magazine to assist in this, and many opportunities to network. The Institutions keep them abreast of job opportunities, with regular reminders of their professional standing - and of the obligations they owe to society.

Furthermore recent research by the Consultative Committee for Professional Management Organisations (CCPMO) reveals that individuals with professional qualifications and membership stand to gain £152,000 in additional earnings, over the course of their career.
