Applying for a Registered Professional Title

Applying for a Registered Professional Title

(Chartered Engineer, Associate Engineer, Engineering Technician)

How can I apply for the title Chartered Engineer?

In order to apply for Chartered Engineer, you must be an active member of Engineers Ireland. 

Chartered Engineer applications are assessed in 2 phases: Phase 1 (Educational requirements) and Phase 2 (Initial Professional Development). You cannot progress to Phase 2 until you have successfully passed Phase 1.

The Chartered Engineer application process is detailed in the Regulations.

Members who meet the Phase 1 requirements can now apply using the five step online application process.

My qualification does not meet the educational standard required to apply for the title Chartered Engineer, but I have many years of experience and very strong engineering skills.

At Engineers Ireland, we understand that each individual situation is different and we value the competences and skills gained throughout an Engineer’s career. Phase 1 of the Chartered Engineer’s regulations details the assessment routes (A, B and Experiential Learning) available to our members in order to apply for the title Chartered Engineer.

When is the deadline for Registered Professional Title applications?

We have two annual deadlines - the last Friday in January and the last Friday in June.  Applications must be received by 5pm close of business on that day and no late applications will be accepted.

I am a Technician or Engineering Technician member; can I apply for the title Chartered Engineer?

Technician or Engineering Technician Members must first apply for an assessment for a route to the title Associate Engineer before they can progress for an assessment for the title Chartered Engineer.
