Chartered Engineers (CEng) can apply for additional registration as a European Engineer. This entitles you to use the letters EUR ING before your name – for example, EUR ING K Thompson MCIWEM C.WEM CEng.
The EUR ING title shows your ability as a professional engineer, and recognises your education, training and experience. However, because EUR ING is not a regulated title, it does not give you any legal rights to register in other European countries.
Your registration is assessed by ENGINEERS EUROPE (formerly FEANI).
The Engineering Council is the UK member of Engineers Europe. To apply for EUR ING registration in the UK you must be a member of a professional engineering institution (such as CIWEM) and registered as a Chartered Engineer or Incorporated Engineer with the Engineering Council.
How to apply
Candidates can apply for EUR ING registration via the application tool on ENGINEERS EUROPE website. This is for first-time applications only.
There is an initial fee of £245. Payment is currently via invoice only; please contact the Registration Team at EURING@engc.org.uk for more information.
EUR ING registration must be renewed every five years. Candidates registered from January 2023 will be required to submit five years of CPD upon renewal; the renewal fee is expected to be £145 in 2028.
EUR INGs who registered before January 2023 will not be required to submit CPD upon renewal and will continue to pay the renewal fee at the pre-2023 rate. The Registration Team will contact you when your renewal is due.
All applications for EUR ING registration are assessed by ENGINEERS EUROPE’s European Monitoring Committee (EMC). The assessment process may take up to six months; or longer if an application is incomplete or the EMC requests further information.
EUR ING registration recognises a combination of education, training and experience amounting to a minimum of seven years. Competence based routes are also recognised.
EUR ING registrants are entitled to use the title EUR ING. The UK Privy Council has approved the use of this title as a pre-nominal and the Passport Agency will accept EUR ING as a title for use on passports. It should always be written in capitals, in front of the name and any other ranks and titles eg EUR ING J Smith CEng.
