Institution of Engineering Designers (IED)

Founded in 1945, Chartered in 2012, the IED is the premier membership body representing engineering and product designers. We aim to support and inspire our members to achieve their career goals and professional aspirations.


The IED requires ALL associate and full members to log at least 40 hours of CPD over a two year period. Half of all CPD logged – 20 hours – needs to consist of formal CPD activity.

IED members who are professionally registered at CEnv and CTPD grades are required, as part of their Chartered registration, to complete CPD annually – this is a requirement of the Charter as established by the Privy Council. Persistent failure to submit CPD records will lead to removal of the professional registration.
