You can now become a Chartered Engineer (CEng MICE) through an Experiential Learning Assessment instead of opting for a master's degree or an Incorporated Engineer (IEng MICE) through an Experiential Learning Assessment instead of opting for a top-up degree.
Experiential Learning is an option for engineers who want to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng MICE) or an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) with ICE but don't have the required academic qualifications. Ordinarily, the qualifications for CEng are at master’s level, either an MEng degree or an MSc with an accredited bachelor’s degree. The qualifications for IEng are ordinarily at bachelor’s level, normally a BSc (Hons) degree.
To apply for an Experiential Learning assessment for CEng, you must have an accredited Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, but instead of undertaking further formal academic study you show how your work-based experience gives you the same level of engineering knowledge and skills as someone who is educationally qualified for the grade.
To apply for an Experiential Learning assessment for IEng, you must have either an accredited foundation degree, an accredited HND, an accredited HNC, or a qualification that has been assessed to be equivalent to one of these. But instead of undertaking further formal academic study you show how your work-based experience gives you the same level of engineering knowledge and skills as someone who is educationally qualified for the grade.
Following a successful Experiential Learning Assessment you will be able to complete your Initial Professional Development and progress to Professional Review.
You provide a written submission that demonstrates how you have achieved the Master’s level learning outcomes. The guidance document explains the process.
Before you can apply for an Experiential Learning Assessment you will need to be an ICE Graduate Member and have an accredited Bachelor's degree or equivalent (for CEng) or an accredited foundation degree, HNC, HND or equivalent (for IEng). This confirms your eligibility for the assessment.
You will need to send several documents with your application for us to confirm if you meet the academic base for CEng or IEng registration.
Your Experiential Learning Assessment submission should include:
