This might be because:
The Academic Assessment will decide if your qualification (or qualifications together) give you the knowledge and skills needed for the membership grade you want to achieve.
If your qualifications don't meet those requirements, we'll give you advice on what you can do next.
So that we can determine what level of membership or Engineering Council registration you are eligible for, you will need to make an online application, and provide supporting documentation listed below under 'Making an application'.
Our Academic Qualifications Panel (AQP) will consider your qualifications against Engineering Council requirements and tell you which grade you can apply for.
