Accredited engineering qualifications

What is the difference between an accredited and non-accredited qualification?

Engineers Ireland accredits hundreds of courses across the diverse disciplines of engineering. Courses that we accredit are internationally recognised and graduates of these courses are eligible to apply for one of our registered professional titles.

Those who hold an Engineers Ireland accredited qualification have a more direct route to membership than those who hold a non-accredited qualification.
