Accredited engineering degrees offer students, their parents and advisors, and employers a mark of assurance that the degree programme meets the
standards defined and set by the engineering profession. They also provide confidence that some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and
skills for eventual registration with a licensed professional engineering institution have been met.

Engineering employers as well as academics are involved in the setting of standards, in reviewing degrees and in the decision-making process about whether
to confer accredited degree status.

The engineering degrees listed on this database have been accredited by one or more of the professional engineering institutions. The period of accreditation
is normally five years and, except where otherwise stated, the dates apply to the intake year, ie the year of enrolment on a degree programme. Accredited
status is subject to periodic review normally every five years. If a degree is not re-accredited, students already on an accredited programme will not be
disadvantaged and can expect guidance and support from the accrediting professional engineering institution.

Accredited programme status indicated on this database only applies to programmes delivered at the main campus of a listed university, unless otherwise
stated. Graduates from the same programme at a different location will hold a non-accredited degree for the purposes of registration, unless it is explicitly
stated in the note below the programme record, or on a separate record related to their location of study, that it is accredited.

A programme accredited as ‘further learning’ or with ‘further learning required’ does not on its own meet the academic requirements for registration or
international recognition. Please see FAQs: Academic Qualifications for information about further learning.

Some entries on the accredited courses database include specific requirements in the public note section. Employers and accreditation agencies with specific
requirements, for example about which modules are studied, may also wish to ask for an individual’s degree transcript or Higher Education Achievement
Record (HEAR) to check such details.

All honours degrees accredited for CEng registration from intake year 1999 also meet the requirements for standard route IEng registration and

Integrated Masters (e.g. MEng) degrees accredited for CEng registration include the outcomes of accredited Bachelors (Honours) degrees and go beyond to
provide a greater range and depth of specialist knowledge, within a research and industrial environment, as well as a broader and more general academic

If you are interested in a degree that is not listed here, you are advised to contact the university to confirm its accreditation status. It is possible that there has
recently been an accreditation visit and a decision is pending, or that the university is about to apply for accredited status for the degree. Occasionally,
accreditation may be backdated. However, it is not a requirement that an engineering degree is accredited and sometimes a university decides not to seek

These qualifications are not listed on this searchable database. HNCs and HNDs which have been accredited can be found under useful documents at the
bottom of this webpage, titled . The document , also under useful documents,
explains their status for registration.

If you achieved your qualification some time ago, it may be listed as a recognised course. This means it is deemed to be equivalent to an accredited course
and fully satisfies the education requirement for IEng/CEng as noted in the individual course record. The can be accessed via

A number of BEng and MSc degrees in Professional Engineering, designed for working engineers who aspire to IEng or CEng registration, have been
developed as part of the programme. These programmes use individual workplace learning contracts to plan learning that leads to the
achievement of a qualification that meets the academic requirements for professional registration and supports development of competence required for
professional registration ( ). The bespoke nature of the learning means that it is not possible for these programmes to be accredited. They are
recognised by and the Engineering Council as a planned pathways towards registration. Degrees that are recognised in this way are
offered by a number of . You can check with the university for further details.
