What is a Chartered Engineer?

A Chartered Engineer is an engineer who has become professionally registered with the Engineering Council. After registration, you’ll be able to use the initials ‘CEng’ after your name, which evidences that you have met the necessary competence and commitment standard.

Why register as a Chartered Engineer?​

The professional title ‘CEng’ shows your peers, employers and clients your experience, skills and commitment. It’s also proof that you have demonstrated competence against an internationally recognised standard.​

Surveys repeatedly show that Chartered Engineers rapidly achieve higher earnings than their unregistered counterparts – and the pay gap is widening.
