The Institution of Engineers (India) was established in 1920 in Kolkata, West Bengal and is acclaimed to have pioneered non-formal education in Engineering. IE (I) conducts an examination for Associate Membership. This examination is considered to be on par with B.E. / B.Tech. when contemplated as an eligibility qualification to write competitive examinations like the Civil Services, Indian Engineering Services, GATE, etc., and for placement in government, the public and private sectors.
There are 2 sections, namely Section A and Section B, in this examination. Section A is common for all candidates aspiring to acquire an AMIE (India). Under Section B, a particular discipline of engineering has to be chosen from among the streams offered.
Technician Members who have been on the roll of the Institution of Engineers for a year are eligible to appear in the non-diploma stream examination based on their date of election to membership. Senior Technician Members can appear in the diploma stream. The exact dates and other details regarding the examinations like the last date of submission of examination forms, etc., are announced by the Institution of Engineers in the ‘Technicians’ Journal.’
The examinations are held twice every year, called Summer and Winter examinations, normally in May / June and November / December respectively.
Subjects in Section A examination are:
- Diploma Stream
- Engineering Mathematics
- Material Science
- Elements of Electrical Engineering and Electronics
- Elements of Computer Science
- Society, Environment and Engineering
- Non-Diploma Stream
- Mathematics I
- Mathematics II
- Engineering Drawing and Graphics
- Electrical Science
- Mechanical Science
- Natural Science
- Material Science and Processes
- Fundamentals of Electronics and Instrumentation
- Computer System and Data Analysis
- Engineering, Environment and Society
Section A examination is common for all those who aspire to become engineers by acquiring an AMIE (I). Basic Sciences, Engineering Sciences and Communication are covered to prepare the candidate, after project work, to move on to Section B by choosing a particular discipline from among the streams offered.
Section B Examination
After Section A, the student has to complete a project work over a period of one year and only on the basis of satisfactory professional competence report, he / she will be admitted to appear for the Section B examination.
This consists of 10 papers of which 7 are compulsory and 3 optional. Currently, only the following branches of engineering are covered:
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronics and Communications Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Metallurgical and Material Science Engineering
- Mining Engineering
- Production Engineering
- Textile Engineering
