Update on SARTOR3 (Standards and Routes to Registration 3) and UK-SPEC (The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence)

The Engineering Council (UK) implemented the SARTOR3 system from 1999. Accredited MEng degrees or accredited BEng degrees plus matching sections are required to satisfy the academic requirements for Chartered Engineers in the UK. The HKIE is a signatory to the Washington Accord and the HKIE recognises the accredited MEng or accredited BEng degrees plus matching sections of the Engineering Council (UK) from first intake year 1999 as satisfying the academic requirements for Member of the HKIE.
The SARTOR3 system has been replaced by the UK-SPEC since 1 March 2004 and the updated academic requirements for Chartered Engineers (CEng) Registration are as follows:

(i) An accredited integrated MEng degree; or
(ii) An accredited Bachelors degree with honours in engineering or technology plus either an appropriate Masters degree accredited or approved by a professional engineering institution; or
(iii) An accredited Bachelors degree with honours in engineering or technology plus appropriate further learning to Masters level.

In line with these changes, the HKIE shall accept graduates from the UK as satisfying the academic requirements for Member of the Institution if they could provide document proof from the Engineering Council (UK) that they have satisfied the academic requirements ie either (i), (ii) or (iii) for Chartered Engineers (CEng) Registration.
