The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) is pleased to announce that Malaysia, represented by BEM, has been accepted as a Full Signatory for two international mutual recognition agreements for education programmes in the Engineering Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector, i.e.: ● ● The Sydney Accord for engineering technology education, generally in the form of Bachelor in Engineering Technology; and ● ● The Dublin Accord for engineering technician education, generally in the form of Diploma in Engineering or Diploma in Engineering Technology. Malaysia’s admission to these two Accords represents a significant milestone for the nation in achieving an international benchmark for quality engineering education. This development means that the graduates of programmes accredited by BEM, through its Engineering Technology Accreditation Council (ETAC), are now recognised by other signatory nations of the two Accords. By being signatories to the above Accords, these programmes are now viewed by the international engineering profession as having met the high standards necessary for graduates to enter the profession at the global level. It also implies that our graduates will be internationally recognised and hence help to attract foreign companies to set up their businesses in Malaysia. Graduates of BEM-accredited programmes can now look forward to having a very marketable qualification to commence their professional career. For Institutions of Higher Learning in Malaysia, this development means that they are now able to attract more students for such programmes, especially from foreign countries.
