Accredited Degrees

The Society accredits a wide range of academic programmes for those seeking professional registration. Graduates with accredited degrees have a distinct advantage when they apply for CEng or IEng and many employers give preference to graduates with accredited degrees. Click Accredited Courses  for a list of degree courses and MSc courses accredited by the Society.

However, the Society will accept any course accredited by any engineering Institution. Go to the searchable Engineering Council database of accredited courses, including those that have been accredited by the Society.

Accreditation is particularly relevant to young people planning to gain EngTech, IEng or CEng registration and a career in aerospace.

Academic Institutions seeking accreditation

For guidance notes and application forms for universities seeking accreditation or reaccreditation, go to the Accreditation Handbook. The application form and additional information can be found in the Accreditation Handbook Appendices document.

The Society makes a small charge to offset the cost of accreditation visits for universities that are not members of its Corporate Partner Scheme.

The Society carries out its accreditation activities in accordance with Engineering Council Regulations, as set out in its UK-SPEC and Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes.


If you work in Higher Education and would like a Europe-wide badge of recognition for your accredited degree programmes, check our EUR-ACE information.
