REGISTRATION AS IEM MENTORS

Registration of Engineers Regulations 1990 states that a registered Graduate Engineer is required to obtain practical experience for at least one year in Malaysia under the supervision of a registered Professional Engineer of the same discipline or approved allied discipline.

In line with this, the IEM has initiated Log Book Training Scheme which is now known as the Engineering Competency Development to provide for the proper practical training of young graduates to ensure that such training conforms to the Institution Rules concerning admission of Corporate Members and eventually as Professional Engineer.

The Professional Interview Regulation states that a candidate shall have had at least 3 years of approved experience in planning, design, execution or management of such works as stipulated and relevant to the profession of an engineer.  Candidates can apply for Professional Interview after having undergone 3 years of practical training.
