With the guidance of the PSEM –National Officers and the full support extended by all other Middle East Chapters ( UAE, Bahrain, Yanbu and Rabigh, CRSA, Jeddah, Oman, and Qatar) and above all, with the blessings of God Almighty, this 8th PSME – Middle East Regional Conference becomes a reality. 

Continuing Professional Competency.A good investment. 


It is one of the main advocacy of PSME  to support mandatory continuing professional competency for licensed Professional Mechanical Engineers.

With the continuing rapid expansion of knowledge required to practice in the basic, as well as the many specialized areas of engineering, PSME  believes that added knowledge, but not limited to formal academic education, beyond the degree should be required to meet the formal preparation necessary for the practice of licensed professional engineering.


During the Conference Engr. Leandro A. Conti, IPP, PSME National

said ASEAN had established Mutual Recognition Arrangements MRAs on eight professional services. MRA assessed the eight professional services and had emphasized: First – its regional and national implementation; Second – its national regulatory changes; and Third – implementation of its frameworks and actual movement of professionals. Though the pace of its assessment and registration was quite slow, still various leaders of the community have been very optimistic that these activities including harmonization of codes and its practices will soon be rationalized and c


ross bordering will soon be realized shortly.

Therefore, PSME supports the concept of engineering continuing education and professional development or coursework aside from formal education in an engineering discipline.


PSME strongly supports comity in supporting those who wanted to get Mechanical engineering license examination and pass. To promote and encourages to join the Society of Mechanical Engineers. – Diarynigracia.com
