Interim Registration

Interim registration is a useful start to your journey towards gaining professional registration. It can give you an edge over other recently graduated engineers when applying for jobs.

Interim registration is available to all individuals who, although not yet possessing the relevant practical experience to meet the competency requirements for full registration, are able to demonstrate their enthusiasm, drive and commitment to their career and the profession by completing a qualification that has been accredited for professional registration.  To check whether your degree is accredited please click here.

To be eligible for interim registration:

Your institution will confirm whether your qualification is accredited and if so, will make an interim registration application to the Engineering Council, who will issue an interim registration certificate for the relevant category of registration, directly to you.

Please note that not all institutions offer interim registration.  If you are interested in becoming an interim registrant please contact your institution to check whether they offer this option. 

What next?
Over the next few years you will be able to work towards exchanging your interim to full registration as an IEng or CEng.  This will involve development of your knowledge, competence and understanding of engineering principles through work experience.

Further information about what is required can be found in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC)
