Is BEng accredited by IET or equivalent? then Masters level additional study required to qualify for Academic rout.
Then satisfy other requirements during PRI.

Type of experience - not just experience.
Satisfying the UK SPEC set by EngC.
The key to registration is demonstration of competence, these will probably come from your most recent employment within the past couple of years.


http://www.theiet.org/membersh...eg/ceng/requirements/

If Technical Project /Paper or Experienced Adult Professional rout?
You are recommended to consult a professional registration advisor.

You can use Career Manager, the IET's professional development recording system, to plan and record your professional development and competence against professional registration frameworks.

You may also consider IEng registration, it requires IET or EngC accredited BEng degree to satisfy the academic rout step One.
Then the PRI etc.
The IET is required by the Engineering Council to interview all CEng/IEng applicants for professional registration. The interview is conducted by two registered members of the IET who are trained for this purpose.

The purpose of the interview is to confirm that you have demonstrated the overall level of competence in all the five competence and commitment areas expected of a professional engineer, as set out in the Engineering Council document, UK-SPEC (http://www.engc.org.uk/ukspec).

I just read the following reply on LinkedIn:
I quote: Lakshman Soysa
" I think time is no barrier to get the Charter. However one must have the required academic Qualifications as detailed by Glenda.My observation in some of the PRI's that I have done, candidates do not bring out the important points as to how the candidate was or is technically involved and the accountability and responsibilities inn a piece of work he is claiming for his competencies. The same job description given in the application is repeated when filling the Competencies clauses. Hope this will be useful for applicants"

No the statement "one must have the required academic qualifications" is incorrect. There are exemplifying qualifications (tick in a box) but, providing the candidate can demonstate that they have completed further learning that is equivalent to these, they can be awarded CEng.

Hope that helps!

David I agree, that's what I like about the EngC UK that it allows multiple routs to registration. That EngC recognized the learning and training one can obtain at work etc.

My IEng was academic rout plus PRI.
My CEng is via Mature Adult rout, I passed all the stage 1 and 2 assessments and I'm preparing for final stage my PRI.

David is right. an 'appropriate' degree fulfils the academic side and gets you to interview quickly. Anything less has a fair degree of interpretation. This can mean more evidence and in the extreme examples a technical review.

The checks & balances are there to to cause misery but to ensure the right level of information is used to assess and evaluate. Having the 'right' degree takes you a larger step to this than not.

Think of it as balancing the need to maintain and demonstrate standards against the minimum work the candidate and assessors need to do to achieve this.

There are no trick question; no-one is trying to catch anyone out; the aims to to help the candidate 'over the line' not find a bigger barrier.

One more thing - its not about time served, but rather about demonstrable competence.

Congratualtions Moshe,
I'm sure you've put a lot of hard work in over the years, and you award is well earned.

Hi Moshe,

Congratulations on becoming CEng.

I noticed in your profile that you have the post nominal of PEng, which means you must live in Canada, or have lived in Canada. In which province do you have your Licence, as I cannot find your name listed in Ontario.

Daniel,

the PEng is via Society of Professional Engineers its not Canadian only designation.

I been to Canada mostly in BC but I never lived there or licensed to practice as PEng there.

If its confusing or misleading in anyway I will ad FSPE PEng(UK).
To avoid any confusion.

Regards,

Thank you.

Yes, In my early 50s I'm a CEng :-)
Got my confirmation emails and now waiting for the certificate.

I didn't make it to be listed in the new registered CEng in the June.

My name will appear on the next listing of new CEng on 5 September 2013.
