The purpose of accreditation is to ensure that the accredited engineering programme satisfies the minimum academic requirements for registration as a graduate engineer with the Board of Engineers, Malaysia (BEM).
In accordance with the purpose, the BEM evaluates programme or programmes leading to the award of engineering degrees and accredits those programmes, which are adjudged as adequately preparing their graduates for registration as graduate engineers and entry into the profession.
BEM uses as a guide the list for Professional/Chartered Engineer by the accreditation organisations of the country where the degree is issued. Candidates are advised to check with the relevant Engineering Accreditation bodies' web site for the list recognised degrees of professional chartered level. However, BEM reserves the right to review the list at any time without notice.
