Why aim for CEng with IHE
Becoming a Chartered Engineer demonstrates a commitment to professional standards, setting you ahead of unregistered engineers, and puts the seal on your achievements. Chartered Engineers use new or existing technologies to solve engineering problems through innovation, creativity and change.

IHE has a proven track record of support for practical engineers and understands specialist disciplines.
