Our Accreditations

Professional bodies set the benchmark for employee standards and can unlock doors to high-level jobs. We make sure that these standards are built into all our engineering courses, giving you the best chance of getting that dream job after graduation. 

Many courses carry accreditations from professional bodies including the Engineering Council, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

There are also many more professional accreditations available through the Joint Board of Moderators – these accreditations are dependent on your chosen course. What’s more, you could gain Chartered Engineer status, or be on your way to achieving this, depending on the course you study. Each course entry will give you further information.
