The Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) is a British professional engineering institution founded in 1938. It is licenced by the Engineering Council to assess candidates for inclusion on its Register of professional Engineers and Technicians.
The IAgrE is the professional body for engineers, scientists, technologists and managers in agricultural and allied landbased industries, including forestry, food engineering and technology, amenity, renewable energy, horticulture and the environment.
As a founding Constituent Body (CB) of the Society for the Environment, IAgrE also assesses suitably qualified and experienced candidates for registration as Chartered Environmentalists (CEnv).
IAgrE also runs two technician accreditation schemes for the sector:
- Landbased Technician Accreditation (LTA) scheme for field equipment (on behalf of the Agricultural Engineers Association) (AEA)
- Landbased Technician Accreditation Scheme (LTAMEA) for the Miking Equipment Association (MEA)
