Welcome to JBM

The Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, the Institute of Highway Engineers and the Permanent Way Institution together represent some 100,000 of the world's leading professional engineers.

These five professional bodies have formed the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) to work and strengthen links with universities and industry to ensure that formal educational programmes (e.g. degrees) and workplace programmes are in place to develop professional engineers that will continue to provide a global contribution to sustainable, economic growth and ethical standards.

The JBM assesses and makes recommendations on the accreditation and approval of relevant educational programmes that it will accept as meeting the requirement to register as a professional engineer with the Engineering Council (EngC) - the body responsible for regulating the engineering profession within the UK.
