Course search tool

Find out which grade of ICE membership you can apply for, based on your academic qualifications.

Our course search tool contains details on a huge number of undergraduate academic courses from around the world. It will be able to tell you whether or not your qualification is accredited by the Engineering Council and therefore eligible for professionally qualified membership.

Simply input your course details below.

If your qualifications don't meet the grade you're aiming for, you may need to apply for an Academic Assessment. This involves us looking in detail at your qualifications before deciding which grade you can apply for. We can then advise you whether you need to do some extra work – like getting another qualification or more experience – before you do your application.

If your qualification isn't listed, you may still be able to apply for membership. Please email the Education and Learning Team at to check.

International accords

International accords are agreements between engineering organisations in various countries to recognise each other’s accredited academic qualifications.

These agreements make it easier for engineers, who are qualified in their home country, to register at the same level with engineering organisations overseas.

The Engineering Council – which represents the UK – has signed up to three international accords.

They are:

  • The Washington Accord – recognises accredited qualifications at chartered engineer level*
  • The Sydney Accord – recognises accredited qualifications at incorporated engineer level
  • The Dublin Accord – recognises accredited qualifications at engineering technician level

*for graduates who started their degree programme before the 1st July 2015.

Learn more about the international engineering accords and see which countries are signed up.
