Depends on what you want. If you are freelance then CEng looks good
on the business card and you can be list on the IEE consultants'
database web pages which also sound impressive.
If you are working in a big company then why not get them to pay your
annual fees, better than just tax relief. Since you would fill out
your IEE form on company time then it's not costing you anything to
If you want to join then the sooner the better really. Over time the
entry requirements go up and up. BTW, the rules are changing or have
changed so that MIEE is not an automatic CEng. I don't know how you
get CEng now but MIEE entrance rules have relaxed so that is easier,
hence CEng is now the next hurdle to pass.
