CEng/IEng/EngTech AMIMechE Fellow Member Associate Members can benefit from our level of experience and established standards, in the knowledge that our process of assessment is notoriously stringent and retains worldwide acclaim for its accuracy of assessment. Members at all grades are designated with post nominal, which they highly regard as international recognition for their commitment, professionalism and expertise Associate member (AMIMechE) Those with an appropriate degree can automatically join the Institution at this level. Engineering Technician (EngTech) Suitable for those who apply proven techniques and procedures to solve practical engineering problems. A variety of non-degree based qualifications can satisfy the requirements, but most importantly candidates must be able to demonstrate knowledge, technical skills and have the necessary experience to meet all competences required. Incorporated Engineer (IEng) Often working in operational roles, maintaining and managing applications of today’s technology at the highest possible level of efficiency. An Incorporated Engineer needs a thorough and detailed knowledge of technology in order to exercise independent judgement and management on a professional basis. Knowledge to a Bachelor degree level will need to be validated. Chartered Engineer (CEng) Involved in developing solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies, either by innovation, creativity or change. A Chartered Engineer might work to develop new technologies, introduce new and more efficient production techniques or pioneer new engineering services and management methods. You will need to show learning equivalent of a Masters degree, in addition to having the appropriate skills and experience. Fellow (FIMechE) A progression from EngTech, IEng or Ceng, applicants must demonstrate significant individual responsibility, sustained achievement and exceptional professionalism during your career.

16 HNC/HND Foundation Degree
FORMAL QUALIFICATIONS IEng CEng BEng / BSc MEng HNC/HND Foundation Degree + Further Learning BEng (Hons) + Further Learning In order to apply for Incorporated (IEng) membership, applicants need to be able to demonstrate a bachelors level of learning. IE: equivalent to accredited bachelors of engineering (BEng) or bachelor of science (BSc). Likewise, in order to apply for chartered (CEng) status potential members need to demonstrate learning at a level equivalent to a masters of engineering (MEng). However, academic courses need to be accredited by IMechE on a case-by-case basis which may mean may degrees or masters are non-accredited and potential members will need to adopt another route to membership. However, for those who have studied at non-accredited courses, there is equivalency with some university courses in certain locations, however, it is the responsibility of the membership team to check this on a case-by-case basis; this is not a volunteer or local member role due to the complexity of courses involved. If you or a potential member are not sure whether your qualifications are accredited then please use the qualification checker There are alternative routes to membership for those who do not have formal education to bachelors or masters level. An example is the career learning assessment process - a means the Institution uses in order to look to demonstrate learning through work-based training plus the career of the individual engineer. For those who still need to demonstrate more academic experience in order to demonstrate a masters or bachelors level of learning then the Institution may recommend further learning through (EG) training courses or even completing a module from an academic course. If you are uncertain about the appropriate level of membership you should pursue or what your academic achievements lead you towards you can contact the Institution’s membership team

You will need to demonstrate all three to achieve professional registration Knowledge Understanding Competence Development
