ICE is launching a clearer and smoother pathway to achieving professional qualification as a result of Membership Streamlining.
Find out about the specific changes and how they impact you.
Find out how you can use your existing professional qualification to gain MICE and Engineering Council registration through our Mutual Recognition agreements. These are international agreements made between two engineering bodies which provide a streamlined route to membership at the equivalent grade to each other’s members.
If you currently hold one of the professional qualifications listed below, and you achieved this by the standard route with a review or interview and not on the basis of recognition or transfer from another institution, then you can apply directly for the equivalent grade of ICE membership and Engineering Council registration.
Please note: Even if you’re eligible for recognition you can still choose to qualify with us directly by Professional Review if you prefer, and we will accept your professionally qualified status in lieu of completion of our own initial professional development.
If you do qualify with us by mutual recognition, you will not be able to use your title as the basis for registration with other engineering institutions. If you would like to know more about this, please contact [email protected].
* EU/EEA nationals who qualified directly with Engineers Ireland may also be eligible to apply for EU recognition under the terms of UK legislation. If this applies to you, please select your preferred route before proceeding.
Before you start, you will need an ICE membership number. If you don’t already have one, please create a non-member account by registering with MyICE. This will enable you to make payments online and access information on our website tailored to your particular interests. You will find your membership number within “My Profile” in your MyICE account.
You can submit an application at any time. We will process your application within one month and confirm if your application is complete and ready for assessment. If there is any missing information we will tell you and will not proceed with the assessment until it has been received.
The assessment itself may then take up to four months. During this time your name will be published on our bylaw 15 list for 28 days, to notify others of your application for membership.
All applications for recognition are assessed for admission by ICE’s Exemption & Recognition Panel, who are qualified Members and experienced ICE Reviewers.
Once your application has been assessed, you will receive a decision letter by email from the Panel. If your application is successful you will be approved for membership and admitted following payment of your subscription fees. Providing you select the tick-box on the application form, if you are successful your name will be published as a newly qualified member on our pass list and subsequently on the New Civil Engineer website.
If your application is not successful we will explain why, and you may be invited to attend an interview at a mutually convenient date and time. If you are ultimately unsuccessful and wish to appeal, you should follow our Appeals guidance.
