  • Chartered Engineer and Professional Engineer are the two terms used for the same thing in different countries. This is a professional affiliation with a body of engineering entity like IIE (Indian Institution of Engineers) or any other similar agency. So far in our country IIE is the agency which is mostly recognised and used by the engineers for the purpose of becoming a Chartered Engineer.

    For becoming an affiliate of IIE one has to apply in the prescribed performa or there is an option of applying online also and become a life member of IIE by paying a prescribed fee. An engineering graduate with 2 years of work experience can apply for this membership and become a member of this professional entity. People having AMIIE mode engineering qualifications are also allowed to apply for it. After becoming a member they can use the suffix 'C.Eng.(India)' after their names. It conveys that they are the member of IIE, the professional body. This is a type of accreditation also.

    Once the application is made and necessary credentials are submitted the governing council of the IIE will decide for the membership of the applicant and will accordingly approve it. This is a professional affiliation and this membership is honoured in other countries also. This also helps the engineers to apply for certain open engineering positions where the companies are looking for C.Eng. certified persons for those positions. Acquiring the Chartered Engineering affiliation is mostly used as the validation of the competence of the person as an engineer and definitely helps in the professional world in seeking better assignments in India or abroad. In some countries the Chartered Engineer or Professional Engineer seek slightly more salaries than those who do not have this accreditation.
