Incorporated Engineers (IEng) maintain and manage applications of current and developing technology at the highest efficiency. They provide independently and as leaders a significant influence on the overall effectiveness of the organisation in which they work.

Incorporated Members are entitled to use the letters IEng MIGEM after their name.


IPD may be expected to take at least 3 years and it is a requirement to demonstrate competence and commitment applied in the gas industry by means of a Professional Review Report.


The process will be more straightforward if you hold particular academic qualifications, these are:

  • An accredited Bachelors or honours degree in engineering or technology
  • An accredited HNC or HND in engineering or technology (for programmes started before Sept 1999)
  • An HNC or HND started after Sept 1999 (but before Sept 2010 in the case of the HNC) or a Foundation Degree in engineering or technology, plus appropriate further learning to degree level
  • An NVQ4 or SVQ4 that has been approved by a professional engineering institution, plus appropriate further learning to degree level*

You can check if your course is accredited on the Accredited Course Search database.
