pec epe exams for the title of professional engineer 2023

For its registered engineers seeking the designation of Professional Engineer, Pakistan Engineering Council is organising the 21st Engineering Practise Examinations (EPE). According to the PEC legislation, Professional Engineers are given preference over Registered Engineers in terms of technical sanction authority, design/process certification, and preferences for higher-level work that leads to worldwide practise. This translates to greater employment prospects, better work placements, and better pay packages for those who obtain the designation of professional engineer.


Therefore, you are eligible to apply for the Engineering Practise Examination if you are a registered PEC engineer and have at least five years of professional experience. Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Multan, Rahim Yar Khan, Hyderabad, Jamshoro, Sukkur, Swat, Khuzdar, Gilgit Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Peshawar, and Quetta will all have the exam at the same time on July 16, 2023. The application form must be submitted no later than June 7, 2023.

  • Without the roll number slip, original CNIC, and original PEC registration card, no candidate may take the exam.
  • The exam will begin at 1000 hours, and the candidate must arrive at the testing location at least one hour prior to the exam's start time.
  • Once the exam has begun, no candidate may enter the examination room.
  • The exam room does not permit the use of programmable calculators, laptops, mobile phones, iPods, or any other electronic devices. Only a basic calculator is permitted.
