SDE Membership

Who can join the SDE?

The Society of Digital Engineering is open for membership from all those involved in digital engineering, building information modelling, software for design and analysis of buildings, computer aided facility management and any other related activities.

Those involved in the higher management of digital engineering on projects will be able to join as Associates, Members or Fellows, to recognise their seniority in the industry and gain designatory letters of ASDE, MSDE or FSDE.

Why join the SDE?

  • Professional certification.
  • Route to EngTech, IEng and CEng.
  • Route to MCIBSE.
  • Professional guidance.
  • Skills development and CPD.
  • Networking and public presentation opportunities.
  • Influence the industry.
  • Access CIBSE Knowledge Portal.
  • Discounts on CIBSE events and training.

Up to now there has been no obvious and naturally recognised ‘home’ for specialists in digital technologies and processes in building services engineering, or for technicians who may not necessarily seek full corporate membership of CIBSE yet. Such individuals seek support, guidance and a place to find their peers. The SDE will offer such a resource, as well as ‘professional’ progression with structure and credibility, which can lead to MCIBSE and EC Registration at the relevant level (not just CEng).
