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.

A Google search resulted in: "the academic degree title of Dott. Ing. is granted after a 3 year first degree, and after another 2 years of study it becomes Dott. (without the Ing). After the state engineering exam, which gives admission to the register of engineers, the title becomes Ing." But the article does not address "Ing.jr"[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Desertroad (talkcontribs) 13:55, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

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: [2] 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)

Please add under DESIGNATIONS AFRICA the following information for Zimbabwe; The Engineering Council of Zimbabwe (ECZ) regulate the Engineering Practice In Zimbabwe (Source http://www.ecz.co.zw/). All registered professional individuals and firms shall apply for practicing certificates which are renewable every year and no person is allowed to practice unless they hold a valid practicing certificate. Pr. Eng. is used as a post-nominal for engineers who have registered with ECZ. Pr. Tech. is a post-nominal for Professional Engineering Technicians registered with ECZ.

Footnotes 10 and 11 are dead. I was unable to find alternate links. I assume they should be marked as dead, but I'm not sure what's the policy in this case. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.140.178.157 (talkcontribs)

Done I've put the page through InternetArchiveBot which found archives for the links. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 19:06, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
