I would suggest the following addition (which is highlighted in Bold Italic):

  • Ing. in Italy used as a pre-nominal (for engineers holding a masters degree ) or Ing.jr (for engineers holding a bachelor's degree) or Per.Ind. (Perito Industriale, for industrial engineers holding a bachelor's or High School degree). A state exam is required. (pre-nominal letters) Registration is with the Consiglio Nazionale degli Ingegneri.

In Canada the designation "professional engineer", "engineer" or "eng." is prohibited by the Engineers and Geocientists Act of each province for example the B.C. Act states the following: [1] Prohibition on practice 22 (1) Except as permitted under this Act, an individual or corporation, partnership or other legal entity must not do any of the following: (a) engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional geoscience; (b) assume, verbally or otherwise, the title of professional engineer or professional geoscientist; (c) advertise or use, or permit to be advertised or used, in any manner whatsoever, in connection with the name of the individual, corporation, partnership or other legal entity, or otherwise, (i) the title of professional engineer or professional geoscientist, (ii) any word, name, title or designation mentioned in the definition of "practice of professional engineering" or "practice of professional geoscience", or any combination or abbreviation of them, or (iii) any other word, name, title, designation, descriptive term or statement implying, or calculated to lead any other person to believe, that the individual, corporation, partnership or other legal entity is a professional engineer or professional geoscientist or is ready or entitled to engage in, or is engaged in, the practice of professional engineering or professional geoscience as defined in section 1 (1);. For this reason the "engineer" word can only be used by registered engineers and the practice of engineering is protected in law and strictly enforced in all provinces. The regulation and licensing of engineers are accomplished through a self-governing body that is given the power to license and discipline professional engineers, as well as regulate the practice of the professional engineers in their province, such as Professional Engineers Ontario. A self-governing body's prime purpose is to protect the public. An engineering license and the award of the title "professional engineer" grants the right to practice as a professional engineer. Many of these associations are also responsible for regulating other related professions. The process for registration is generally as follows: Karlosbarrera (talk) 22:21, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
