    The minimum is now a M.Eng. or M.Sc. degree in engineering from a university course accredited by the relevant Royal Institution. (IMechE, IET, RAeS etc.) It's vital you check that the degree is accredited from the start.

    In addition, the applicant will need to have completed an accredited (peer reviewed) training programme usually lasting 2 to 4 years post graduate as well as an elevated level of professional competence and experience gained within industry (another 2 to 4 years). i.e. from starting the degree programme, it can take at least 10 years to fully qualify. That duration is dependent on the engineers career path, promotion to a position of responsibility as well as experience gained in a management role (team leading), with commercial and financial responsibility.

    Finally, the applicant will need four referees (all chartered) to propose them for election to CEng. This is then followed by a final peer interview executed by two chartered engineers together with a chairperson. Together they determine whether the applicant meets the educational, training and professional experience requirements.

    Not necessarily, although it usually is.

    The accreditation is entirely separate to the degree. It's always best to check.

    Usually the university will say if a course is accredited, and who by, on their course info pages.

    Or http://www.engc.org.uk/education-ski...course-search/

    (but it's a bit tricky to use...)
