This semester, I'm taking only one subject which is EIS which stands for Engineering in society. In this subject I'll be teached about all the ethics of an engineer, professionalism, how to survive in engineering world and etc. But the topic that I want to tell here from the subject is what are the steps to become a professional engineer in Malaysia. Becoming a professional engineers is where you can have Ir at the front of your name or PEng at the back of your name (this is praticed outside Malaysia), for instance, Ir. Mohd Muazan Mohd Mohsin (PEng).
From what I have learnt, the requirements to become a Pro. Engineer are first, candidate must must be registered as a Graduate Engineer with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) (pic), it is recommended for the candidate to register with BEM right after they have graduated from their university. Second must have satisfied the training requirements of BEM. Third, have passed the Professional Interview (PI) and selected as a Corporate Member with Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM). Lastly, the candidate must have been residing in Malaysia for a period of not less than six months immediately prior to the date of application (this term apply for those who are working and studying outside Malaysia before applying).
