Find out about the specific changes to the attributes and how they impact you.
This page explains how the Professional Review process works. Find out what you'll have to do for the submission stage and on the day of your review, where you can sit your review, and how much it costs.
This is where you prove that you’ve developed all the skills, knowledge and experience needed to become a professionally qualified member.
Your Professional Review includes the review submission and review day. You'll be assessed by two experienced civil engineers (your reviewers).
You’ll need to send us several documents, including your Professional Review report, CV and continuing professional development (CPD) records.
Your report describes how you have the attributes needed to become professionally qualified. It will need to go into detail about your skills, knowledge and experience, including the projects you’ve worked on and the responsibility you've had.
This involves three activities: a presentation, an interview and a written exercise, which take place on the same day.
We’ve prepared a guidance document which outlines all you'll need to know to help get you ready and apply for your Professional Review
Professional Reviews are held in the UK twice a year – in spring (March/April) and autumn (September/October). We also hold reviews in Hong Kong, India, China and many other countries throughout the world.
