Guidelines for Applicants 1. Introduction A professional engineer (P. Eng) by definition is one whose academic qualification & experience will be in conformity with the internationally mutually acceptable standards. After evaluation of competency by the National Committee of the relevant engineering discipline, the applicant engineer is certified as a “Professional Engineer” by a Board for Certification of Professional Engineers (BFC). A Professional Engineer may be designated as IntPE (India) i.e. International Professional Engineer (India) subject to meeting the evaluation criteria, payment of fee for transfer to IntPE register solely at the discretion of the Board for Certification. Those applicants who apply for transfer to IntPE (I) register in the prescribed form along with transfer fee as applicable will be assessed for PE as well as IntPE during the same assessment. The applicants will be interviewed by respective National Committees on International Procedures / Codes / Practices. However, if applicants seek a transfer to IntPE (I) register at a later date, they will be assessed separately on receipt of application for transfer to IntPE register, along with prescribed fee and other charges, as applicable. 2. Grouping of Engineering Disciplines Engineering disciplines include in which bachelors degree or equivalent is awarded. The engineering disciplines in which Certification of Professional Engineer as well as International Professional Engineer (India) are undertaken at present are as follows:        Civil Engineering Electrical Engineering Chemical Engineering Mining Engineering Mechanical Engineering Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering Textile Engineering
