We’re pleased to announce that all of our Master’s degree and our undergraduate MEng have been now accredited by CIBSE to meet the academic requirement of further learning for Chartered Engineers (CEng)

Graduates from UCL IEDE’s Master’s programmes, who also have an appropriately recognised first degree or equivalent, can apply for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status through CIBSE after a suitable period of post-graduate experience, using the Master’s degree as evidence of the further learning requirement. (Full details on CIBSE Website - sheet M20 ) Being registered as a Chartered Engineer is recognition of your high level of professional engineering skill and expertise, so enhancing your career prospects and giving higher earning potential.

Since 2010 our Environmental Design and Engineering MSc and Light and Lighting MSc have held accredited status for CEng further learning from CIBSE. They are now joined by our newest Master’s programmes Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc and Smart Buildings and Digital Engineering MSc, both accredited in February 2020 and applied retrospectively to benefit our alumni. Our undergraduate course Engineering and Architectural Design MEng has also been accredited.

Professor Dejan Mumovic, Director of UCL Institute for Environmental design and Engineering said:

I am pleased that a global professional body, such as CIBSE, has accredited our Master's degrees aimed at creating the future professionals able to address the 21st century building design challenges such as health and wellbeing, whole life building performance, and zero carbon buildings."

Our postgraduate degrees train students to tackle complex issues with interdisciplinary thinking, investigating the interactions between the built environment and health, human wellbeing, productivity, energy use and climate change. To find out more please visit our programme directory.
