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.
You provide a written submission that demonstrates how you have achieved the Master’s level learning outcomes. The guidance document explains the process.
- It is a good idea to have a mentor to support and guide you through the Experiential Learning process. Your mentor will be an experienced engineer who understands the process and can verify that the submission is your own work
- Your submission is assessed by two volunteer members
- You may be asked to provide additional information or attend an interview if they are unable to come to a decision based on your submission
Before you can apply for an Experiential Learning Assessment you must be an ICE Graduate Member, Associate Member or a full Member and have an accredited Bachelor's degree or equivalent (for CEng) or an accredited or approved 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:
- A CEng Experiential Learning Assessment form or IEng Experiential Learning Assessment form (maximum 500 words per learning outcome), depending on which option you are applying for
- An extended CV
- Appendices (max 8 pages)
- A non-refundable fee
- A letter or email from your mentor confirming that the report is your own work
