Engineering Technician (EngTech)

Engineering Technicians apply proven techniques and procedures to the solution of practical engineering problems.

You will need to be a professional member (usually a Technician Member TMEI) to be eligible to become an Incorporated Engineer, but if you aren’t already a professional member you can apply for professional membership and professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer at the same time. 

What does it mean?

• You are able to solve practical engineering problems.
• You have some supervisory or technical responsibility
• You are creative and skilful and comfortable with technology
• You contribute to designing, developing, manufacturing, operating or maintaining products, equipment, processes or services.
• You apply safe systems of working.

Does that sound like you? Then read about one of our EngTechs, who tells us about the value of the qualification to himself and his company

How to apply

If you are not already a member you will first need to join as an Associate Member (AMEI) or Affiliate member. This can be done at the some time you submit an application for IEng registration or while you are compiling your application. From 01 July 2018 the Membership Panel will only accept applications from existing members.
