Dear all,

I graduated with my engineering bachelor's degree from Pakistan (accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council) and have recently compelete my MSc from UK (accredited from IET). I would like to start the process towards my CEng but would like some help in identifying if I'm eligible for it or not. Any help here would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Qualification for CEng is more than just academic qualifications - it also requires relevant experience.

A good start would be to download a copy of UKSpec (available from this web site), and decide for yourself if you have enough experience in all of the areas required for CEng.

Then if you think you are qualified, contact a professional registration advisor for more guidance on how to apply.

Thank you for the reply.

I understand that I need relevant experience and have recently started a career in my field. I'm still a long way away from getting the CEng but at this stage I just want to confirm if I'll be eligible for it or not because the IET website states that for CEng, among other conditions, I need to have "An accredited Bachelors degree with Honours in engineering or technology, plus either an accredited Masters degree, or appropriate further learning to Masters level".

Does this statement mean that I need to have a bachelor's degree accreditated by IET or any engineering body (in my case it's the PEC as mentioned earlier)?.

Your batchelors degree doesn't have to be accredited, it just makes things easier.

This page lists a number of possibilities, including
Other formal qualifications, eg those gained overseas, assessed by the IET as equivalent in the context of your overall application
as alternatives.
