Is my degree accredited?
Graduates with accredited degrees have a distinct advantage when they apply for Chartered or Incorporated Engineer registration with the Engineering Council and many employers will take this into account when recruiting graduate engineers. The Engineering Council has a searchable list of all accredited courses by the Society and other professional engineering institutions across the globe. These courses are all accepted by the Society for membership and registration.
For more information on registration go to the Registration & Accreditation section.
mycareerpath is the Society's online log book which young professionals can use free of charge to record their experience and achievements. Designed originally for those working towards Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech), all members can use the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) option to record their professional development.

Those going into a career in engineering can also apply also for Interim Registration with the Engineering Council if your degree is accredited as meeting the academic requirements for CEng or IEng in full.
