3 i) Define the term of engineering ii) State the importance of engineering in daily life iii) List out the engineering professional agencies or/and bodies in Malaysia

4 Latin root (Inginere) – to design or to devise An engineering is a; discipline and profession that applying technical and scientific knowledge and utilizing natural laws and physical resources to design and implement materials, structures, machines, devices, systems, and processes that safely realize a desired objective and meet specified criteria

5 i) Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) - a board that accredited engineering bachelor’s degree program in United States ii) Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) - is entrusted by Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) to accredite all engineering Bachelor’s program in Malaysia.

6 i) Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC)  Accreditation for Engineering courses is only given by EAC.  LAN and other bodies will submit the application to EAC for accreditation.  Public university submit directly to EAC whilst private university go through LAN. BASIC ENG.INTRODUCTION 1.1 DEFINITION OF ENGINEERING

7 i) Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) (cont.)  After university get accreditation from EAC then university submit the letter to JPA/PTPTN etc.  Now, all these body are merged in MQA. BASIC ENG.INTRODUCTION

8 WHAT IS EAC ? Engineering Accreditation Council Formed in 2000 Previous accreditation for engineering programs : PSD (1957)  IEM (1959)  BEM (1967)  EAC IEM LAN PSD BEM

9 WHAT IS EAC ? Engineering Accreditation Council formulate and update accreditation policy and criteria approve guidelines and operating procedures oversee operational arrangements and appoint evaluation panel receive evaluation report and decide on accreditation respond to complaints, appeals or any proposals for change oversee development and operation of accreditation and mutual recognition agreement with other countries foster the dissemination of developments and best practices in engineering education hold consultation meetings with universities when necessary

10 ABET has defined engineering as ;  “[T]he creative application of scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus,  or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design;

11 ABET has defined engineering as ;(cont.)  or to forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions; all as respects an intended function, economics of operation and safety to life and property.”

12 EAC defined engineering as ;  “that an engineer is to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations”.

13 i) Scientist - Like an engineer, but a primary goal is the expansion of knowledge and understanding physical processes. -In Malaysia, scientist is a person having expert knowledge of sciences. He/she uses the scientific method to do research in physical sciences, medical sciences or in any other field.

14 i) Scientist (cont.) - Normally emphasized the fundamental discovery of physical laws rather than their application to product development.

15 ii) Engineer - Apply knowledge of mathematic, science, material & physical principles - As well as skill in communication & business - In order to develop new better products & machines.

16 iii) Technologist - Technologists focus on direct application of establish engineering principles and processes. Math, the physical sciences, and underlying engineering theory receive limited coverage. - More interested in hardware and processes.

17 Engineers apply physical and chemical laws and principles and mathematics to design many products and services. These products include cars, an aeroplanes, building, computers, hand phone, home appliances and machines that makes various products. Engineers consider important factors such as costs, efficiency, reliability and safety when designing products.

18 Engineers perform tests to make certain that the products design withstand various loads and conditions. Engineers play a significant role in the design and maintenance of a nation’s infrastructure, including communication systems, public utilities, and transportation.

19 Engineer apply science, technology, and mathematics to solve problems in a systematic way.

20 The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) - Is a statutory body governed by the Engineer’s Act 1967 and it was formed in 23rd August The Board is established for the purpose of regulating the professional conduct and practice of registered engineers in order to safeguard the safety and interest of the public. - Engineer must registered before he/she can be practice as an Engineer.

21 Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM’S) - T he main engineering professional society in Malaysia. - Learned society registered under the Society’s Act. - Membership is voluntary, but professional standard set by IEM for membership are accepted by BEM as qualifications for registration as a Professional Engineer.

22 Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM’S) -At first, to become corporate membership, one needs only 5 years experience as an Engineer. -To ensure only engineer with relevant experience would be admitted to become member and could register as a Professional Engineer; - Constitution was amended and Professional Interview was introduced.
