The Institution of Engineers (India), 8 Gokhale Road, Kolkata is the national organization of engineers in India. The Institution of Engineers (India) has more than one million members in 15 engineering disciplines in 114 centers or chapters in India and overseas; it is the world's largest multi-disciplinary engineering professional society in engineering and technology world. The Institution of Engineers (India) was established in 1920 in Kolkata, West Bengal and is acclaimed to have pioneered non-formal education in engineering. The Institution of Engineers (India) conducts an examination of its 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 Indian Civil Service, Indian Engineering Services, GATE, etc., and for employment in Government, public and private sectors in India. This qualification is recognized by the Ministry of HRD, government of India, as equivalent to B.E./B.Tech. The Institution of Engineers (India) was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1935. It is currently headquartered in 8 Gokhale Road, Kolkata - 700020.
The Associate Member of the Institution of Engineers India is a professional certification given by The Institution of Engineers (India). The qualification can be earned by passing Section A, Section B, Project Work and Laboratory experiments examination of the Institution. If an applicant passes both sections of the examination, he or she becomes an Associate Member of The Institution of Engineers (India) (AMIE). The Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development considers this qualification is equivalent to a degree in engineering. AMIE was earlier Grad IE (Bachelor's degree of Institution). Government of India in continuation to its earlier recognition, has recognized passing of sections A and B examinations as revised, conducted by The Institution of Engineers (India), as equivalent to bachelor's degree in the appropriate branch of Engineering of the recognized universities in India and has notified in the gazette of India, Part I, Section I, dated February 11, 2006. AMIE is also recognized by UK-NARIC as British bachelor's honours degree. AMIE is also recognized by FCSA Foreign credential service of America as equivalent to bachelor's degree in engineering. Minimum duration for passing both sections is 4 years, however professionals with 3 years polytechnic engineering can complete it in 3 years since they are exempted from certain examination papers of Section A. Project work and Laboratory experiments can be carried out only after clearing at least 5 subjects of Section B.
- History:- IEI was established in 1920 in Madras with Sir Thomas R. J. Ward as the founding president. It was formally inaugurated in 1921 by Lord Chelmsford, the then-Viceroy of British India. In 1935. IEI obtained the Royal Charter of Incorporation from King George V 'to promote and advance the science, practice and business of engineering'. Sir Thomas Guthrie Russell (President 1933–34) led the successful petition for a Royal Charter. Harold Williams served as President for a period in the 1950s. Dr. L V Muralikrishna Reddy, FIE, Int. PE, CEng (UK) is the youngest President and has assumed office at the Annual General Meeting held at Hyderabad on 21 December 2014. The Institution obtained the full membership of the Engineers Mobility Forum (EMF) at the Bi-annual International Engineers Meetings 2009 held at Kyoto, Japan on 17 June 2009.
- Development:- Subsequently led to the birth of the local institutions. Sdasysnkya of this institution in 1920 where it was only 138 thousand in 1926 exceeded there. The organization launched a quarterly magazine to remove 1921 and June 1923, a quarterly bulletin (Vivrnptrika) put out with him. Membership in this organization, its Aesoshiatt 1928 (associate membership) had started to take the exams, every level of government engineering college b. S. C. The degree considered equivalent. December 19, 1930, the then Viceroy Lord Irwin, the foundation of its own private building 8, Gokhale Road, in Calcutta. January 1, 1932 the company's office moved into the new building. September 9, 1935 in relation to a State Charter of the emperor George V accepted. In the second paragraph of the declaration of the institution duties are described briefly as follows: "Indian engineers to meet the goals and objectives of the entity being established, they increase the general development of engineering and engineering science, their implementation in India and people associated with the organization and members of engineering related topics Information Adn-in providing facilities to receive and give ideas." The branches of this institution slowly began spreading across the country. Timely Mysore, Hyderabad, London, Punjab and open its center in Bombay. May 1943 Associate Membership exams began to be taken twice a year. In 1944, four major categories of technical operations were established. Civil, Micanikl (mechanical), electrical (electrical) and General (General) Engineering. Different for each department head has to be elected for a term of three years. The Silver Jubilee was celebrated in 1945 in Calcutta. Bihar in 1947, Mdhyprant, Sindh, Balochistan and Tiruwankur, these four locations open new centers.
- Fora:- There are five fora of the IEI: the National Design & ResearchFoundation F (NDRF), Water Management Forum (WMF), Safety and Quality Forum (SQF), Sustainable Development Forum (SDF) and Rural Development Forum (RDF). The IEI also has an autonomous organ, the Engineering Staff College of India.
- Functions:- In addition to representing India in the Engineers Mobility Forum, the institution has been prominent in World Mining Congress (WMC), the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), the Commonwealth Engineers’ Council (CEC), the Fédération Internationale du Béton (fib), and the Federation of Engineering Institutions of South and Central Asia (FEISCA). It has no worldwide bilateral agreements with other professional societies.
Members are divided into two main types: corporate (organic) and non-corporate (nirangik).[incomprehensible] Members and associate members are calculated in advance. Respected members of type II members, brothers (companion), graduates, students, associate members and auxiliaries (subscriber) are counted.[clarification needed] According to the official declaration of the first type member "chartered engineer" noun officer.[incomprehensible] All applicants are considered for general education, proper practical training, and personal integrity to take up the responsibilities of an engineer.

Universities and other Shicshasnsthaon committees, is also represented. The institution "Engineering Institutions Ov Ov Kanfrens the Commonwealth" is also associated with.
- Annual session:- Each local center's annual session in the month of December. The main body of the annual session alternately in each center, at his invitation, in the month of January or February, in which all members are represented all over the country and important articles published in the Journal of the dispute. The architecture of the ancient institution Badarmay printed and handwritten texts and related literature collection Arwachin Nagpur is in the center.
- Evaluation:- As per UPSC (Union Public Service Commission), the associate membership examination is a good engineering degree examinations Recognized equivalent. Not only that, the university degrees and the organization of other Diploma on for its associate membership to the Union Public Service Commission only recognizes the central government considers appropriate for engineering services. Most state governments and other public institutions are the same. The new degree or diploma to recognize the institution has kept stable following procedure. The first officer on behalf of the university or institution is applying for accreditation. Council appoints a committee which subsequently went on College course levels and its relevance, exams, teachers, and other features means checking your own report to the Council.
