- Use of an internationally protected title, e.g. Chartered Engineer
- Recognition as a professional in your field
- Improved career opportunities and salary prospects
- Greater influence within your organisation
- Opportunities to connect with influential and inspirational people
- International recognition of your professional competence and commitment
How much does it cost?
To get started, you’ll need to pay an application fee within seven days of applying. There’s also an entrance fee to be paid to the Engineering Council, once you have been awarded professional registration. Check our fees page for up to date fees.
What if I’ve already registered with another institution?
You can transfer to the IET at any time as long as it’s more than 12 months after you registered, and your Engineering Council subscription payments are up to date. Transfer in three easy steps:
- Become a member of the IET
- Send an extended CV to show your career history, with the last five years in detail to demonstrate technical attributes, maintenance of competence, evidence of past CPD and evidence of planned future CPD for a minimum of three years.
- Pay a transfer fee and wait to hear from us.
