Info About Professional Engineering & International Professional Engineer Certification-: The Institution of Engineers India is the Largest and oldest professional Engineering body in India , The IEI not only provide an opportunity to become an Engineer after completing AMIE but also a Professional Engineer.
The Institution of Engineers (India), the largest multi-disciplinary engineering professional body of engineers, has been certifying Professional Engineers (PEs) for over a decade. The Institution is now a Full Member of the (IPEA), which facilitates the international mobility of professional engineers certified by IEI according to the international standards.
Basic Info About IPEA Agreement-:
THE INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS AGREEMENT RECOGNISES THE SUBSTANTIAL EQUIVALENCY OF STANDARDS ESTABLISHING THE COMPETENCY OF PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS FOR INDEPENDENT PRACTICE
Previously known as the Engineers Mobility Forum (EMF), the International Professional Engineers Agreement (IPEA), is a multi-national agreement between engineering organisations in the member jurisdictions which creates the framework for the establishment of an international standard of competence for professional engineering, and then empowers each member organization to establish a section of the International Professional Engineers Register.
The standard of competence applied is the same as for the APEC Engineer agreement. Most of the APEC agreement members are also members of the IPEA agreement, but the latter is truly global so that countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa have become members of IPEA even though they cannot join the APEC agreement.
Why is Professional Engineer Certification Important for an Engineer?
The certification of an engineer as a Professional Engineer (PE) recognizes his professional capability and competence. The Professional Engineers certified by IEI, as per international norms in vogue, would be free to practice the profession in other IPEA member economies, subject to Agreement between two member organisations along with the Authority / Authorities responsible for Registration / Licensure or Participating Authority / Authorities for mutual recognition of Licensed / Registered Engineers.

Why PE Certification?
Professional Engineer authorization enables engineering professionals to advance higher in their careers and in wide ranging ways. Considering the higher standard of competence for the engineering profession, PE certification not only enhances an engineering professional’s stature, but also makes them suitable for higher levels of authority and responsibility.
Not only does a PE earn respect among engineering peers and a personal sense of achievement, there are a number of practical career options that are not always available to their non-PE certified counter parts. The contribution to career advancement is among the most important benefits of PE certified professional.
During the hiring process, for example, having the PE certificate shows that the candidate has met all the standards of the profession and, especially for fields where the PE is preferred but not required, sets her or him apart from others. In future, only a professional engineer may prepare, sign, seal and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or to seal engineering work for public andprivate clients. With these responsibilities comes more authority and greater earning
Earning and maintaining a PE certificate enables an engineer to become an independent
consultant, a government engineer, or an educator. For an engineering professional who may want to pursue a career as a consulting engineer, own his or her own engineering firm, or be in charge of engineering work for the public, PE Certification is a assurance of competency of Engineers.
