To regulate the engineering profession & education in the country , it is made
necessary for all engineering graduates of recognized engineering institutes in
Pakistan to obtain PEC registration. So registration as professional engineer becomes
mandatory rather than optional for genuine engineering graduates. Still, following
is a brief idea of why such registration is made essential.
In order to get nationally and internationally recognized as a bona fide engineer
and to get one's engineering qualification internationally accepted without any
doubts, it is mandatory to obtain registration with Pakistan Engineering Council.
The council is the official body having the sole right of providing such authentication
in the country. Such registration also provides one with brighter employment opportunities
& service structures as such rights of Professional Engineers are supported
by the PEC Act & bye laws & the relevant PEC committees strive for the betterment
of such matters.
According to Section 27 of the Act it is mandatory for a person who undertakes any
professional engineering work to get himself registered with the Council.
It is also binding on all employers to employ only those persons for undertaking
professional engineering work whose names are borne on the Register of the Council.
Violation of Section 27 of the Act attracts penalties.
