How to become a Professional Engineer? (IR title)

It is paramount important that all engineering graduate register with the Board of Engineers Malaysia immediately after graduation or before they work as engineers. The registration with BEM is mandatory as BEM is the regulatory body whereas registration with IEM is optional. You are encourage to register with IEM (is a learned society) to keep abreast with latest info on engineering. Registration with IEM can only be done after your registration with BEM has been approved.

Practical Experience / Working Experience:
Minimum 3 years practical experience (in a branch/discipline approved by BEM) is required to be fulfilled by a Graduate Engineer so as to be entitled to apply for registration as a Professional Engineer in future. If you are currently working overseas, you must make sure that 1 year is obtained in Malaysia.

All the 3 years min. experience must be supervised a professional engineer in the same branch. The experience must recorded. How to record? Depends to individual. The following is important to be recorded:
(1) Date & Period (e.g: from when to when, year to year)
(2) Project Name
(3) Your title (designation) in the project e.g. Project Manager
(4) Scope of Works - details
(5) Design & drawings (if related)
(6) If you are Civil Engineers - you need to have 12 months in Design/office and Site/field

Untuk melayakkan diri anda berdaftar sebagai seorang jurutera, sila semak samada ijazah anda diiktiraf atau tidak oleh BEM

http://www.bem.org.my/v3/listofaccreditedprogrammes.html

Pengalaman bekerja sebagai jurutera hanya diiktiraf apabila anda berdaftar dengan BEM mengikut undang2 Malaysia.
