If a student is traveling to a country where an AMIE examination could not be taken the only option available to the student is to travel back to India for the to take the examination.
Can students who have already passed AMIE take on another related branch of engineering as a second or third optional qualification?
Students who have already achieved a professional qualification in one related filed of engineering can re apply to get an extra professional qualification in another branch of engineering. For example of a student has already obtained the Bachelor of Technical Studies he may again apply for AMIE course in the field of civil engineering if the student desires so. The eligibility and registration process is the same as in for other students. Associates and other corporate members therefore could apply for courses in an additional filed of engineering offered by the AMIE. Members who are enrolling for additional branches of engineering should do so by paying a fee of Rd. 2,000.00 by demand draft ($ 200 applicable for overseas students). The examination application form will cost Rs. 1,200.00 or $ 150 for overseas students. Students who are reapplying for courses in different branches of engineering will be exempted from taking the Section A altogether and will only have to take the recent papers in Section B. However, the student will have to face a total number of 10 laboratory experiments and the project work on completing and passing five subjects in the Section B. Such members who will be recognized as Associates by the Institute should refer their membership number as A(—–) instead of the earlier reference number of G(——-) for graduates in all their correspondence with the Institute.
Can students achieve good grades by referring to other material and publications of the IEI?
Students should not try to get through the AMIE examinations by simply referring to the available published material of the IEI. The published material of IEI has its own merits and is compatible with the study and exam trends of the course. However, students are encouraged to look through these books and what ever extra study material they can get hold of in order to gain additional depth and knowledge in their field of studies.
Will a single book cover the entire syllabus of the relevant subjects? Does a student need any additional reading material?
Like in any other course and academic programs a single book will not be sufficient to guarantee that the student will receive better than average marks at the examination. Therefore students are strongly advised to look for all available printed and on line reading material that could be obtained on every aspect of the engineering field that is relevant to the student’s scope of education. Students can exchange such reading material and make notes out of these books for future references. It is advised that students make use of engineering study books that are written by designated writers and books that are available in the local engineering institutes and universities. Students could also get the guidance and advice of the administrators at the AMIE with regard to any additional reading material. The administrators at AMIE have a wide experience and knowledge and will guide the students in the most relevant reading material.
Once a student completes the AMIE program how can he receive the Chartered Engineer status?
The eligibility requirement for a Chartered Engineers is that the person has to be a registered Corporate Member (Life) at the Institution of Engineers India. Professional aspiring for the designation of Chartered Engineer can obtain a certificate, nominating him as a Chartered Engineer. The charge applicable for this procedure is Rs. 2000.00 for the Indian and Nepal professionals and if applying from an overseas country the charge will be $ 200. This facility is available only for those members who have made their composite subscriptions or the compounding fees for the life membership with out arrears. The applicants should provide details of their professional background detailing all academic and professional achievements with the demand draft of the applicable fee made payable to the Institute of Engineers India and make the payment to the office address at Kokatta. The aspirant should make a note of the membership number on the reverse of the demand draft. The postal address to send in the application or to get any further queries in this regard is:

You may also obtain further details in this regard by emailing to email@example.com
What is the mechanism used for a student to find out if their payments has been deposited by IEI?
A student will not be able to find out if the IEI has deposited the relevant examination fee until the Institute publishes the student’s relevant examination roll number along with the examination centre and the admission card prior to the examination. These details will be also published by the Institute at their web site http://www.ieindia.org/.

Students who are aspiring to complete the AMIE in Hindi should take the same language for both Section A and B. The student will receive their final grading and will be certified as having passed in Hindi. However, the Institute strongly recommends students who are aspiring to continue their career prospects on to international and high standards that are maintained in the engineering filed today to take the program in the English Language as it will facilitate the student’s entry into the international engineering arena.
A student will be expected to do their project work and to carry on with the laboratory experiments after having passed five subjects in the Section B examination. The Institute of Engineers will provide a list of the study centers and institutes or colleges which would help the student to obtain the required number of laboratory experiments and tests. The Institute will send by mail all the relevant documentation pertaining to the student’s project work and expected laboratory experiments upon the clearance of the five subjects. The student will receive a letter from the Institute naming the title for the expected project work and another letter and form detailing the list of places for the lab experiments. The student should indicate the desired college for the experiments and return the form to the Institute with a fee of Rs. 5,000.00. The project work and the lab experiments will allot marks of 100 for each and the student will be expected to select a minimum of ten lab experiments from the five sections given in the syllabus. That means a student should select a minimum of two from each group.
