Question About Selling Pec Number

3 posts in this topic

IMO, the only legal way to use your PEC number is to get employment by a firm and physically work for it, so that you could get the works executed as per standard engineering practice.


According to my understanding, 'Selling your PEC number to a firm' means to indicate that you physically work for a firm, BUT ACTUALLY YOU DO NOT, and get paid for it. This action has following implications.


Firstly, it is constitutes a lie that you work for the firm (whereas you actually do not).


Secondly, by doing so, you indirectly certify (or the firm wrongly poses) that you are supervising the engineering works executed by the firm (although your are not) as required by PEC, and thus you are responsible for all wrong doings and defects in engineering works executed, for which your PEC number is being used.


And, none of the above , is legal.

Uzair is right.. It is probably the worst thing that you can do as a professional.

      A two hour session will be held in the Wah campus of CIIT. The attendees will receive a certificate which can be helpful for engineers in matters of PEC-registration. 
      The speaker will be discussing the topic of performance-based design and evaluation of tall buildings. It is good opportunity for structural engineers to equip themselves with recent advancements regarding the structural analysis and design of tall buildings.
      The speaker, Dr. NAVEED ANWAR, who is executive director at AIT Solutions, is not only a Structural engineer, but also has been actively involved in software-development of CSI products such as ETABS, SAP2000 and CsiCol.
      Please find the brochure in the attachment for further details.
