The majority of our courses at the Department for Automatic Control and Systems Engineering are accredited. This is a mark of assurance that our degree programmes meet the high standards set by the engineering profession.
Graduates from an accredited engineering degree programme will have achieved part or all of the underpinning knowledge for later professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
The Engineering Council UK regulates accreditation and describes accredited courses as follows:
Accredited Courses are Educational Qualifications that have been determined to meet the academic requirements of ECUK and its member Institutions for registration as Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech).
All our courses (BEng/MEng) are also fully accredited by the IET and InstMC.
Should I study for an MEng or BEng ?
Accredited BEng courses meet the educational requirements for both IEng and partial-CEng status.
Accredited MEng courses meet the educational requirements for CEng status.
For more information on the significance of the titles IEng and CEng and the full eligibility requirements for these, please see the Engineering Council website.
