If you’re already registered with the Engineering Council, you may be able to become a member of ICE without having to sit the Professional Review.
You can use this option to apply for ICE membership or technician membership if:
- You’re a current member of another Engineering Council-licensed institution
- You're currently registered as a chartered engineer (CEng), incorporated engineer (IEng) or engineering technician (EngTech) with the Engineering Council and have been for at least the last two years
- You qualified directly for that membership and registration directly and did not transfer it from another institution
What else do I have to do?
You need to show us, in writing, that you have the right level of knowledge and experience for the membership grade you’re applying for.
This is measured against a set of ‘attributes’ for member grade, at IEng or CEng level, and against'standards' for EngTech level, depending on your Engineering Council registration.
You will be assessed against the attributes equivalent to your level of Engineering Council Registration.
We may also ask you to come to an interview if your written evidence doesn't show that you have the level of knowledge and experience that's needed.
To become a member at IEng or CEng level, your application must be supported by three professionally qualified engineers, and at least one must be an ICE member. The sponsor questionnaire lists who is eligible to sponsor your application. Please contact email@example.com about sponsors if you wish to apply for MICE at EngTech level.
If you’re eligible for recognition by this route, you can still choose to qualify directly by Professional Review if you prefer. As a CEng or IEng registrant, you can apply directly for Chartered Professional Review or Member Professional Review without the need for an ICE career appraisal or training agreement. If you are an EngTech registrant, you can apply directly for Technician Professional Review.
If you do qualify with us by recognition, you will not be able to use your MICE as the basis for registration with other engineering institutions. If you would like further advice about this please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
