IMechE membership as an Associate Member is for a graduate, as told above, who has a degree in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) subject. In addition, the candidate needs to satisfy one of the following criteria:
- Have an undergraduate degree having accreditation from IMechE
- Possess a UK undergraduate engineering degree
- Have undergraduate maths, physics, or another related science degree
- Possess an international engineering degree fulfilling IMechE’s academic requirements
- Have an Open University undergraduate degree with an acceptable profile
Unfortunately, qualifications that are not comparable to a British bachelor’s degree (Level 6) or above (such as HNCs, HNDs, and Foundation degrees) don’t fulfill the academic requirements for the designation of an Associate Member.
