Welcome

What category is right for me?

Find a registration category that’s the perfect fit.

If you can see the value of becoming professionally registered, you’ll want to make sure that you choose the right professional status. One that articulates the type of engineer or technician you are and what you can achieve.

Through the IET, you can apply for one of the Engineering Council’s four professional statuses.

Each one has a standard which is a variation of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). This means that for each status, you have to demonstrate a set of competences (abilities) and a level of commitment.

We can help you choose the right professional status for your career.
