Employers benefit significantly. Having Incorporated Infrastructure Engineers and Chartered Infrastructure Engineers will give your organisation a competitive advantage, assuring clients that your staff are highly skilled and will deliver projects on time and on budget.

A professionally qualified workforce shows your organisation’s commitment to the highest standards of professional excellence, and demonstrates the competence of those responsible for creating the infrastructure society relies on.

Our new infrastructure membership grades at IEng and CEng widen the opportunity to demonstrate a fully professionally qualified team engaged in delivering infrastructure projects.

Who's it for

The professional qualifications are for a broad range of infrastructure engineers who work with civil engineers to deliver infrastructure projects.

To become an Incorporated Infrastructure Engineer (IEng MICE) or Chartered Infrastructure Engineer (CEng MICE), you'll need to possess the right level of qualification, possess a minimum level of experience, and be able to confidently demonstrate your learning and experience to your peers.

Because our members come from such a vast array of backgrounds and with very different experiences, we've tailored the grade of MICE to meet your needs. Whether you're:

  • Already an experienced infrastructure engineer looking to take your career to the next level
  • Professionally qualified with another institution in the UK or internationally
  • Just starting out in the industry

If you’re recently working in a role which allows you to demonstrate your technical knowledge and understanding against engineering fundamentals that act as the foundations of civil engineering (for example structures, materials, hydraulics or geotechnics) then you should apply to become an Incorporated Civil Engineer or Chartered Civil Engineer.

If you’re working in an infrastructure role where the principal engineering fundamentals you are applying are not core civil engineering, (for example process, chemical, mechanical, digital, electrical and electronics engineering), then you should consider an application to become an Incorporated Infrastructure Engineer or Chartered Infrastructure Engineer.

We will be piloting a limited number of infrastructure EngTech reviews in 2024 (these are already fully subscribed), before offering reviews to all in 2025.

We can work with you in advance to offer guidance and advice, so please let us know if you are interested. We’d like to hear from you!
