Accreditation and Approvals Panel

We are seeking volunteers to join the Accreditation and Approvals Panel (AAP). Reporting to the Professional Affairs Committee, members of the AAP provide critical expertise, guidance, and governance in delivering accreditation of programmes.

This is an opportunity to get involved with the future direction of engineering programmes and can help you demonstrate personal commitment to your field of work, as well as further your professional development. We welcome interest from all members and are seeking stronger representation across gender, geography, and career stage. Members of the AAP can be drawn from either academia or industry.

The AAP typically meets four times per year, with a mixture of online and hybrid attendance. Members of the panel review applications for accreditation from HEIs both in the UK and overseas, and attend visits to the HEIs to view facilities, and meet staff and students. The panel also assists with the review and changes to university programmes, and with queries from the EI accreditation team.

To apply for this panel, you will need to be an EI member. Please email your CV and a short covering letter, expressing your reasons for applying, to Should you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
