How does it work?
Accreditation works alongside your Quality Assurance processes to ensure that your programmes are continually improving and in line with the latest best practice.
You’ll be listed on the Engineering Council’s Qualifications Database (QUAD) and you will be able to use the IET Accredited Programme logo and the Engineering Council Accreditation logo on promotional material and programme documentation.
You can submit your accreditation application online via ADAMS, our bespoke accreditation management software which will guide you through the process from start to finish. You can also speak to your dedicated account manager.

How your students will benefit
Being about to start (or already enrolled on) an IET accredited course is part of the eligibility criteria for many IET Scholarships and Prizes, including the IET Future Talent Awards, supported through a mixture of IET charitable funds and donations from key engineering and technology organisations.
It also helps improved graduate employability by linking to UK-SPEC, ensuring that your students have developed the appropriate skills and knowledge for an engineering career and professional registration.
We also accredit a number of degree programmes outside of the UK.
The website for International Accreditation is currently under construction however if you are a Higher Education Institution (HEI) where your local accreditation agency is a signatory to the Washington Accord, you will need permission from that agency before the IET will be able to visit. To do this please complete the Notification of International Visit form, below.
Once complete, please send the form to firstname.lastname@example.org where you can also ask for more details about International Accreditation.
