Kuala Lampur

Accrediting In: Malaysia

The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) through its Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) assesses and accredits engineering degrees offered by institutions of higher learning. BEM evaluates programme or programmes leading to the award of engineering degrees and accredits those programmes, which are adjudged as adequately preparing their graduates for registration as graduate engineers and entry into the profession. There are two types of accreditation given by BEM: conditional accreditation and full accreditation. The period of full accreditation is five years after which it has to be revalidated. Where there are minor shortcomings in meeting the accreditation requirement, the programme may be given conditional accreditation for a period of not more than 2 years during which the faculty must take necessary corrective measures.
