Accreditation for companies and universities

Whether you are a company providing in-house training to your employees or an academic institution delivering a learning experience to your students,  accreditation plays a vital role in developing your programme as well as providing external recognition. Accreditation benefits individuals on your programme too, by providing external assurance that it’s delivering the right skills and provides a pathway to professional registration.

Academic accreditation and approval

The Energy Institute accredits programmes spanning the breadth of the energy industry from petroleum engineering through to renewables.

The Energy Institute is licensed by the Engineering Council to award CEng and IEng accreditation, in addition to approving vocational qualifications for EngTech status. The EI can also accredit non-engineering programmes for Chartered Energy Manager and MEI status.
