1) I dont think there is such an issue

2) Not sure about that but getting registered with PEC is obviously the first thing.

 

Lets wait for other members to reply. I am also interested in this information.

Anique,

 

1. Registration with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), as a 'Consulting Engineer' (either as a firm or as an individual), is based primarily on following pre-requisites:

 

a. Valid registration as a 'Registered Engineer' with PEC

  (Freshly graduated engineers, with a B.Sc. Engg degree, are accepted as 'Registered Engineer' by PEC)

 

b. Valid membership with PEC, as a 'Professional Engineer (PE)' with PEC

  (Requires a minimum of 5 years of practical experience in relevant field, after being enlisted as 'Registered Engineer', and passing of Engineers' Professional Exam  (EPE), conducted by PEC)

 

c. Completion of at least 16.0 CPD credit points

 

As such, having done masters in 1 yr, should not be a problem, for registering with PEC, provided your BS Engg degree is acceptable.

 

2. Please see the following links for knowing the relevant rules & requirements, and downloading application forms etc.:

      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.
