Title: THE INSTITUTION OF ENGINEERS, MALAYSIA (IEM)


1
THE INSTITUTION OF ENGINEERS, MALAYSIA (IEM)
ENGINEERING THE ENGINEER PROFESSIONALISM A
WAY OF LIFE
Facts Fancies
  • Orientation/Seminar Presentation-
  • By Engr. Rocky HT Wong, PEng, FIEM
  • Hon FAFEO cum ASEAN Engineer, Founder Fellow
    AAET, Hon Fellow (TEEAM), The Head Commissioner
    ASEAN Engineers Register, Chairman the IEM
    Pro-ETI Bureau, EAC Councilor, UTAR Industry
    Advisory Panel, IEM (Principal Interviewer), etc.

2
A Definition Of -
  • 1.0 ENGINEERING is the profession in which
  • A knowledge of the mathematical natural
    science
  • Gained by study, experience practice
  • Is applied with judgement
  • To develop ways to utilise
  • Economically
  • The materials forces of nature
  • For the benefit of mankind.

3
A Definition Of -
  • 2.0 ENGINEER shall mean a person who
  • By reason of his special knowledge
  • And use of mathematical, physical engineering
    sciences
  • And the principles methods of engineering
    analysis design
  • Acquired by education and experience,
  • Is qualified to practice engineering.

4
  • 3.0 Characteristics of engineering students -
  • A strong interest in and ability to work with
    mathematics science
  • Better problem-solving skills, e.g. ability to
    think through a problem in a logical manner
  • A knack for organising carrying through to
    conclusion the solution to a problem
  • An unusual curiosity how why things work keen
    to be multi-skilled
  • A responsible young person with higher ambition
    in life.

5
  • 4.0 A technical specialist, these days, more so
    an engineering services professional, may be
    referred to as either engineer, scientist,
    technologist, technician, or (in the Malaysian
    context) a TA.
  • The difference between a scientist and an
    engineer is -
  • The scientist primarily uses mathematical
    physical science to acquire new knowledge
  • Whereas, the engineer applies similar knowledge
    to design develop usable devices, structures
    and processes.
  • In short the scientist seeks to know
  • the engineer aims to do.

6
  • 5.0 Knowledge Society -
  • A society organised around the production and
    application of knowledge with social economic,
    cultural and political implications and it
  • Gives rise to knowledge-economy (i.e. K-economy)
    wherein economic value accrues from knowledge
    intensity, especially human knowledge,
    intelligence creativity become key assets for
    Services.
  • The engineer well-grounded with Know-Why of
    mathematical natural sciences equipped with
    Know-How principles methods of engineering
    analysis design and the Know-What ability to
    apply technology is the fit-for-purpose K-worker
    more likely , the leader of the engineering team
    of K-workers.

7
  • 6.0 Globalisation Regionalisation of the
    K-economy introduced the term Engineering
    Services Professionals otherwise referred to
    as the Engineering Team consisting of-
  • The Engineer (benchmarked to WA)
  • The Engineering Technologist (benchmarked to SA)
  • The Technician (benchmarked to DA), and
  • The TA / Engineering Asst ( a local grade)

8
  • 7.0 The engineering functions carried out by the
    Engineering Team can be in the areas as follows
    -
  • Research ,
  • Development,
  • Design,
  • Production,
  • Testing
  • Construction/Installation,
  • Operation Maintenance,
  • Sales,
  • Management,
  • Consulting,
  • Teaching Training
  • Regulators/Technical Officers
  • Miscellaneous

9
  • 8.0 Focusing on The Engineer the natural
    person who is expected to have a BEM / IEM
    recognized qualification based on an EAC
    accredited engineering programme which would have
    the breath and depth of knowledge content that
    will enable a graduate engineer to solve complex
    problems now and in future and create newer
    technology.

10
  • 9.0 The Engineer, on graduation, shall have
    acquired in 4 years-
  • Scientific strength
  • Professional competency and be
  • Multi-skilled,
  • Well-respected and a potential industry leader,
    and
  • Morally and ethically sound.

The sum total of which shall prepare the Engineer
to be technically competent and a well-respected
professional spearheading technology and wealth
creation.
11
  • 10.0 Professionalism is a way of life -
  • A professional person is one who engages in an
    activity that requires a specialised
    comprehensive education, and is motivated by a
    strong desire to serve humanity.
  • A professional thinks acts in a manner that
    brings favour upon the individual the entire
    profession
  • A professional, besides technically competent,
    shall have a positive attitude toward life that
    is continually reinforced by educational
    accomplishments professional service.

12
  • 11.0 The professional engineer to have the
    following -
  • Specialised knowledge skills used for the
    benefit of humanity.
  • Honesty impartiality in engineering service.
  • Constant interest in improving the profession.
  • Support professional technical societies that
    represent the professional engineer why? Because
    the rapid development in science engineering is
    the work of technical societies.
  • The engineer is a member of society, and must be
    able to integrate and socialise with the
    community at large.

13
12.0 The Professional Engineer Code of Practice
-
  • Accredited and Recognised Qualification
  • Code of Ethics (COE) / Code of Professional
    Conduct
  • Professional Assessment Examination (PAE-BEM) or
    Professional Interview (PI IEM)
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
  • Design codes and standards satisfying Essential
    Public Interest Requirements (Applications
    Development)

14
  • 13.0 The Professional Interview (PI) -
  • A candidate, a Graduate Engineer of more than 3
    years working experience, will have his practical
    experience assessed not only on a time basis, but
    also on merit meaning he or she will be tested on
  • Candidates grasp of the application of
    engineering principles
  • Candidates capacity to accept responsibility
  • Candidates ability to communicate.

15
  • 14.0 Breadth and depth of knowledge and
    experience
  • A candidate appearing at a PI will be required
    to show that he or she
  • can apply in practice the theory, and
  • has acquired an understanding of the fundamental
    processes of
  • - investigation,
  • - planning,
  • - design,
  • - construction
  • either the whole supply chain / processes,
  • or, one or more of those processes
  • with either a completed project or an assignment
    on engineering project not brought to fruition.

16
15.0 Pre-PI and at the PI
  • Submit forms IEM/PI(1) IEM/PI(2)
  • Prepare Experience Report with a companion
    Project Report
  • Approximately half an hour face-to-face interview
    with Interviewers
  • Section A - 1½ hour essay on one of two questions
    based on Experience (as contained in Reports)
  • Section B - 1½ hour essay on one of two
    questions selected from among a bank of questions
    on COE.

17
16.0 Post PI
  • Pass PI elected to Corporate Membership i.e.
    MIEM and when more than 3 years BEM registration
    and completed PDP apply to BEM for PEng
    registration and if needed, a licensed EPC
    consider ACPE (under MRA) APEC Engineer under
    IMF etc.
  • Failed PI appeal if PI not fair, however dont
    give up and try again.

18
17.0 The IEM PI Regulations (2001)
  • For more information, please refer to the IEM PI
    Regulations (2001), where in.
  • Appendix A Guidance on Documents
  • Appendix B A Candidate who is a teacher
    in engineering
  • Appendix C A Research Candidate
  • Appendix D Guidance on specific requirements
  • for branches of
    engineering

19
  • 18.0 Do you know why the professional assessment
    is styled an interview and not an Exam?
  • Time honoured peer assessment (with OFIs) of an
    engineers professional competence benchmarked to
    best practices established by a progressive
    fraternity mindful of public interests, carried
    out in an atmosphere of aplomb and decorum among
    peers.
  • Therefore, corporate membership of IEM is a time
    honoured universal measure of peer recognisation
    and respect of engineering, technology and
    innovation (ETI) expertise and professionalism.

20
  • 19.0 Challenges of the future -
  • The world continues to undergo rapid changes
  • The huge tasks of providing energy on the one
    hand climate change on another,
  • Maintaining a supply of water food vis-à-vis
    environmental sustainability,
  • Rebuilding infrastructures retooling
    facilities,
  • Technology of space etc..
  • All these add up to challenges of the future
    which will be beyond current imagination!

21
  • 20.0 How about reinventing the future? A total
    transformation?
  • Early engineers were more effective in leading
    change because they were fully integrated in
    society they were craftsmen and inventors with
    the engineering profession beginning as craft
    guilds technology began independently of
    science.
  • The scientification of technology has reduced
    engineering to fixed formulas methodologies
    dampening creativity.
  • The professionalisation of engineering has
    constrained engineers to rigid rules
    regulations standardisation!

22
  • 21.0 ENGINEERS RISE!
  • Engineers should rise to the occasion lead
    social transformation by becoming once more
    imaginative responsive to societys needs
    meaning engineers can reinvent themselves
    society if we reintegrate resocialise
    contribute more to Know-What the Know-Who
    than the Know-How.
  • Besides science, engineering technology, we may
    need to be students of Know-When and
    Know-Where, i.e. we need to be students of
    history geography.

23
The transition from a paradigm in crisis to a
new one from which a new tradition of normal
science can emerge is far from a cumulative
process, one achieved by articulation or
extension of the old paradigm. Rather it is a
reconstruction that changes some of the fields
most elementary theoretical generalisations as
well as many of its paradigm methods and
applications. Thomas S Kuhn, The Structure of
Scientific Revolutions (1970),page 84/85
24
  • Footnote The IEM under the OFIs environment
    has been reviewing and improving the application
    process for election as Corporate Members on a
    continuing and incremental basis to be in line
    with the belief that IEM welcome more
    professional engineers as members.
