Specialist professional registers

A section of Crossrail tunnel

Join a specialist register to show your expertise in a particular area of civil engineering. Learn more about our registers and how they can benefit your career.

Being a member of a specialist register marks you out as an expert in your field.

To join a register, you'll need to pass a rigorous assessment by other specialists. This will test that you have the knowledge and skills required in that particular area.

What areas does ICE have specialist registers in?

Our registers cover various fields, representing both UK and international members. Use the tabs below to find out more.

European Engineer Register

Chartered ICE members (CEng MICE) who got their qualification after a Professional Review, can apply for registration as a European Engineer.

This entitles you to use the letters EUR ING before your name – for example, EUR ING J Smith CEng MICE.

The EUR ING title shows your ability as a professional engineer, and recognises your education, training and experience. However, because EUR ING is not a regulated title, it does not give you any legal rights to register at the equivalent level (CEng) in those countries.

Your registration is assessed by the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI) but you need to apply to ICE.

How do I apply?

Please visit the European Engineer Register page of the Engineering Council website first for more information. If you want to apply, please contact us at professional.reviews@ice.org.uk or on +44 (0)20 7665 2344.

Applications can be submitted at any time, but please allow up to six months for assessment. It may take longer if the committee needs more information.

Fees

The total fee for 2015 is £175. Applicants need to send two cheques (one for £145 payable to the Engineering Council and another for £30 payable to ICE). You need to renew your registration every five years, which costs £45.
