How to become Ceng with an Algerian degree

Hi All,

I am holding an Algerian bachelor (from university) degree from the engineering department, I have almost 8 years experience between Algerian Hong Kong (some projects in Asia Pacific and Europe as well), at the moment, I work as an electrical engineer in consultant firm who focus on doing T&C (Testing and Commissioning )  and design, our business focus on data center mostly, however, we did some other commercial facilities as well (Banks, Hotels, offices),I had an experience with big names like Microsoft, Equinix, HSBC, Apple, Airtrunk, Digital reality.. est

My question is that possible for me to apply Ceng in electrical field with an Algerian bachelor degree or not. and if no is there any other way how to become a Ceng.

thanks for the consideration.

  • If you haven't already, I'd start by looking at the requirements for professional registration as we have a number of options available.

    Professional Registration is competence based, so any work and study you have already done will contribute to an application and if you can demonstrate the required levels of competence you can apply.  To understand if you meet the requirement, we would recommend looking over UKSPEC and particuarly the CEng Competences if that is what you are interested in: 

  • Thanks Karhryn,

    one more question popped up after i looked to the ling you have sent to me, in order to complete the membership application, there is a section asked for My Supporter's Details, where i could find this person, and could i do a membership without this requirement ?

    thanks in advance 

  • The roles of the supporter are slightly different for membership (MIET/TMIET) and Professional Registration (CEng/IEng) - 

    For Membership: The role of the supporter is to confirm, from their personal knowledge, that the applicant has the appropriate knowledge
    and understanding, as detailed overleaf, and is a suitable candidate to use the IET’s designatory letters after their name. A supporter can be the applicant’s employer, a member of the IET, or someone else who knows the applicant in a work capacity.

    For Professional Registration: Ideally your supporter knows or has known you professionally, working at a senior level to you and with direct knowledge of your role and responsibilities, such as your current line manager, employer, Academic Supervisor, or Training Scheme Coordinator.

    You can apply for membership without providing the supporter details at this stage, but the membership team may ask for further details as part of the application so if you can identify one that can be useful.

  • Thanks Kathryn, i appreciate your advise. 

    regarding the MIET, I got the MIET membership after the assessment with IET team, now it is time to start the Ceng journey, however im a bit confused and hesitated how to start this journey.

  • Hi,

    The first thing is that yes: you can apply for CEng with your Algerian Bachelors' degree, provided you also have sufficient relevant experience.

    The best thing is to contact a Professional Registration Advisor

    They can explain the process to you and talk through your particular experience.



  • Appreciate your advice Andy Millar, indeed, I find and advisor in Hong Kong and he encouraged me to go ahead and apply for the Ceng, moreover, my director and our chef engineer encouraged me too, and they promised that they will sign for me and both of them they are Ceng ( CIBSE and IET) 

  • Now I obtained the MIET, so another journey for the Ceng started, thanks all for your support 

  • Hello Ramzi,
