Professional Engineer – Competancy Exam Requirement

March 5, 2008

Engineers keeping up with the news would know that in addition to the Professional Assessment Examination (PAE), from January 1st, 2008 engineers would be required to pass a Competency Exam before being registered as a professional engineer in Malaysia.

Lo and behold, the date has slipped. Engineers who apply to take the CAE after April 1, 2008 would have to pass the CE.

The CE is intended to test the engineer’s knowledge with respect to laws applicable to their engineering speciality.
