About the Engineering Council

Representing the engineering profession

Under its Royal Charter the Engineering Council regulates the engineering profession in the UK and represents the interests of UK engineers abroad.

The engineering profession in the United Kingdom is regulated by the Engineering Council through 36 engineering Institutions (known as Licensed Members) who are licensed to put suitably qualified members on the Engineering Council's Register of Engineers.

The Register has three sections: Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Engineering Technician (Eng Tech).

These titles are protected by the Engineering Council's Royal Charter and may only be used by registrants.
