Registering with BEM

Posted: September 8, 2011 in Electrical Engineering

First ever step when you graduate is to register yourself with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). You can go to their website at for further instruction.

It is important to register if you are planning to do Ir. after 5-6 years in your careers. You will need to keep a record of all the knowledge and task you had done to be presented. Plus, you actually need to register to practice your degree LEGALLY in Malaysia!

BEM will ONLY accepting records starting for the first date you officially registered with them. Therefore, do not waste your time and start register NOW!

I registered mine in the month of May 2011. Now it is already September and yet I have not receive any news yet. Some says BEM only had their board meeting twice a year. Hopefully my application will get approved soon.

Also, please be mind that for an Electrical Engineer that are majoring in POWER SYSTEM, make sure you only tick 1 BOX (which is ELECTRICAL) when applying for your major in BEM. DO NOT tick ELECTRONIC ever… there has been a complaint by some of my seniors that BEM accidently put them into Electronic and it would be pointless as Malaysia would only gives Ir. based on your major in the university.
