    This is a Professional Engineer status recognised by the Engineering Council, which can take several years to achieve after graduation from a traditional degree course.

    Further, due to the unique combination of academic and work based learning, on achievement of I.Eng status, you will be automatically promoted to Assistant Engineer level, leapfrogging the position of Graduate Engineer, and will be encouraged to develop yourself further to gain Chartered Engineer Status.
