The main objective of the Society is to enhance the status of trained and experienced professional engineers in the absence in the UK of any legal protection for the title "Engineer". The founding members believed that this was necessary, as "Engineer" can be used by anyone in the UK, whether or not trained or experienced. This remains a priority for the Society.



The Society created and maintains a Register of Engineers who can demonstrate knowledge and competence in engineering. Applicants who meet the Society's criteria for membership may use the designation "P.Eng"..



the Society of Professional Engineers traces its origins to the Society of Engineers, which was founded in 1854 as a learned society.[1] On 27 October, 1969, a number of the Society of Engineers' Corporate members formed the Society of Professional Engineers. (The original Society of Engineers was integrated in 2005 into the Institution of Incorporated Engineers, itself merging with the Institution of Electrical Engineers in 2006 to form the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the biggest professional engineering body in Europe).



The Society is a Company Limited by Guarantee, registered in England, and its Memorandum and Articles of Association were approved by the UK Government's former Department of Trade and Industry, now Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Its legal objects are:[2]



  • To promote the high standards of expertise and professionalism in the practise of engineering, for the benefit of those members of the general public who have need to avail themselves of the services of engineers.
  • To promote the development of inventions and improvements in the practise of engineering and to disseminate information on matters affecting the practise of engineering so as to bring the results of research and considerations of good practise into the public domain.
  • To promote improvements in the laws relating to matters of engineering practise so that members of the public may be better able to rely on the highest standards of advice and practise in those who purport to be professional engineers.



The Society keeps a register of persons who subscribe to the Society and who, in the eyes of the Society, 'have proved their competence and can be accurately described as Professional Engineers', awarding them the 'PEng MSPE' (member) or 'PEng FSPE' (fellow) designation according to qualifications and experience[3] Getting in is tough, but can prove rewarding if trying to excel in areas such as proving an invention.



In 2018 April, when The Society of Professional Engineers UK merged with Institution of Engineering and Technology, the international members of SPE-UK establish the Society of Professional Engineers UK & International and to keep the register of International Professional Engineers and their designations PEng,MSPE(UK &International)



The society becomes an  online society and collaborates with other international engineering organisations which have the same objectives.

The Society of Professional Engineers (UK and International) will no longer adopt the Constitution of The Society of Professional Engineers-UK and it is a new professional organisation composes of the majority of  International Members and a few UK Members of Society of Professional Engineers-UK and our organisation is not related to The Society of Professional Engineers-UK although we preserve  PEng(UK & International), MSPE (UK & International) , FSPE(UK & International).

We will continue to refer SPE-UK Membership Assessment System.

The membership certificates of SPE-UK are still valid in SPE-UK & International and only the new members whom are admitted after 28 April 2018 will be issued with electronic version of the certificates bearing our new logo. Usage of SPE-UK logos is replaced with our new logo.
