Engineering Council Registration – CEng, IEng and EngTech Professional Status

Route to Engineering Council Registration for ICorr Members  in partnership with the Society of Operations Engineers (SOE)

Registration for Institute of Corrosion Professional Members takes place through the Registration Agreement with the Society of Operations Engineers, a Licensed Member of the Engineering Council (ECUK).  This registration will confer the titles of Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech) dependent upon the Applicant’s qualifications and experience.

Why Become Registered?

If you are Professionally Registered  with the Engineering Council (EC), your status shows employers that you have and are committed to maintaining and enhancing the knowledge, skills and competence required to meet the engineering and technological needs of today.  This sets you apart from those who are not registered. The titles available are explained below.

EC Registration increases a person’s earning potential and establishes credibility with peers across the profession.  The professional qualifications of CEng, IEng and EngTech are internationally recognised.

Maintaining registration requires continued professional membership of a Licensee or Professional Affiliate of the Engineering Council who in turn, can help registrants find development opportunities through exposure to new developments, training or networking opportunities.

For Engineers who, already a Professional Members of the Institute (FICorr, MICorror TICorr) consider that they meet all the competency requirements as detailed in Engineering Council’s UK-SPEC 4th Edition and wish to apply to be registered, please download the relevant application form and guidance notes.
