There is no need to panic on recognition issues.Recognition outside India is beyond the control of Govt of India HRD Ministry or AICTE.Both the bodies has no locus standi with International recognition since India doesn't qualify under Washington Accord.So either of bodies doesn't have authority to decide about International Accrediation.As far as International recognition goes only IE India is the only Professional Institution from India which holds International Accrediation under Engineers Mobility Forum.Currently I along with my fellow colleagues from Engineers Australia & IPENZ New Zealand and other fellow members of IEA are involved actively on Pilot Project where EMF full Members (IE India represents India) where mutual recognition of each member nations qualifications are recognised for Professional Engineering registration & Professional practise and further education globally.IE India Graduates are safest among all Indian Graduates since they being associated with IE India.Now nothing has changed in recognition issued from HRD Ministry which has been issuing same recogniton letter repetition when it was released since inception of IE India.
FLASH: There is something new NEWS for most of you that new MOU has been signed on May 28,2010 which will allow all Professional Engineering Graduates from IE India,IME,IETE,AeSI etc to acquire additional BE Degree from Assam University along with there IE India Graduation.Only registration will be needed to be done with Assam University,but passing of AMIE will be considered sufficient for Award of BE Degree from Assam University.All Professional Engineering Graduates will be awarded same BE Award as per new MOU signed recently.
Please be advised that this BE Award like any other Indian University's BE will not be accrediated for PE Registration in USA,Canada,UK etc .But AMIE Qualification will be treated as accrediated and acceptable for PEng registrations under EMF (Since IE India is Full Member of EMF,only its Award we will accept for International Accrediation).Unfortunately we cannot extend this facility to other Indian University BE Degree holders as they need to pass IE India PEng examination to qualify for same level of global accrediation and acceptance.
AMIE is acceptable in overseas private sector and also Further MS studies in USA,Canada,UK ,Australia etc.
Hope it clarifies the situation for all of you.
All the best and good luck!
