Dear all,

My education and experience is written below.

Education:
MSc (Electronics), Quaid e Azam University, Pakistan, 2007
MS (Electronic Engineering), Mohammad Ali Jinnah University, Pakistan, 2009
MS (Electronics Design), Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall, Sweden, 2011

The problem is my MS degrees are not accredited by any engineering council, neither BS, which was actually two years in physics and maths.

I have a question, that IET provide us any facility to assess and evaluate such non accredited degrees for membership or not ?

In other words, can we say strictly that only the accredited master degrees in engineering are the minimum recruitment for membership.

Please write your comments and suggest me, my plan is to get C. Eng in future.

Best regards,

Hi,

Your qualifications look impressive you may be eligible for the CEng registration although they are not accredited. I will suggest your contact the IET registration and standards for the assessment of your qualifications and advise.
I wish you good luck.

Dear Lawrence Aikins,

I would contact IET for membership. Thanks for your reply.

I have another question just to be in more confidence.

Lets suppose my application is rejected for professional registration C. Eng.

In that case, Is there any refund policy ? (The fee which is submitted at the time of submission of application)

or there would be a complete loss of payment and when he would apply next year or time he is required another payment at that time.

-------------------------
Best regards,
Bilal

If you are using Career Manager I believe you can submit an intention to register which will cost you nothing but will get you advice on your application.

Another alternative is to contact a professional registration advisor and ask them for guidance. Again the advice will be free.

Kind regards

It is not a must to get accredited Master's degree to gain CEng status. Some members with substantial experience also can gain CEng status without meeting UKSPEC.

To be accurate, they must meet UK-Spec requirements , but UK-Spec allows for competence & experience to be taken into account in lieu of accredited qualifications. To quote "Formal education is the usual, though not the only, way of demonstrating the necessary knowledge and understanding.....". Hope that helps!
