The Institution of Engineers(India), the largest multi-disciplinary professional institution of engineers, had been certifying Professional Engineers(PEs) for over a decade. With increasing globalization and trade in services, enabling free movement of professionals across the world, the necessity of engineers acquiring international level certification has become inescapable. The Institution of Engineers(India), responding to the requirement and in service of the engineering profession, has modified system and procedure of ” Certification of Professional Engineers” in line with international norms and has obtained provisional membership of the Engineers Mobility Forum(EMF).
The Professional Engineers so certifies to the international level and placed on international Register after due process, would be eligible to practice their profession internationally without the additional scrutiny of verification beyond what is applicable to domestic engineers in the receiving countries.
Why professional Engineering?
The certification of an engineer as a Professional Engineer (PE) recognizes his professional capability and competence. The Professional Engineers certified as per international norms would be free to practice the profession in other countries like the UK, Canada, Japan, Australia, etc. without any additional checks beyond those applicable to the local engineers in those countries on Institution’s attaining full membership of the EMF.
