Progression into Professional Registration

The City & Guilds Graduate and Post Graduate Diplomas in Engineering have been developed to provide a flexible route to career success as a professional engineer.

City & Guilds is working with the UK’S leading professional institutions to ensure that the qualifications are aligned with the requirements for incorporated Engineer [Graduate Diploma] and Chartered Engineer [Post Graduate Diploma] registration.

The register of Chartered Engineers [CEng] and Incorporated Engineers [lEng] is held by the Engineering Council, the UK regulatory body for the Engineering Profession. The Engineering Council sets and maintains the internationally recognized standards of professional competence and ethics that govern the award and retention of these titles.

To become a professionally qualified, candidates must be a member of a licensed Professional Engineering Institution, who will act as the awarding body for their registration. IET, IMechE and ICE are the three largest licensed Professional Engineering Institutions in the UK, allowed to assess candidates for inclusion on their register of Professional Engineers.
