MANILA, Feb. 25 (PNA) — A total of 44 Filipino engineers in Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia’s eastern region have been recognised as ASEAN Engineers by the Philippine Technological Council – Middle East and North Africa Affairs (PTC-MENA) in special conferment ceremonies in Manama, Bahrain.

The Department of Foreign Affairs said in a news release that the conferment is a step towards attaining full status and recognition of engineering professionals to practice and work in the entire ASEAN region.

Engineer Federico Monsada, president of the Philippine Technological Council (PTC), and Engineer Romulo Agatep, PTC director for international affairs and ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organization (AFEO) Country Registrar-Philippines led the awarding of the certificates and medals to the conferees — 38 civil engineers, five electronic and communications engineers, and an electrical engineer.

Philippine Ambassador to Bahrain Alfonso Ver urged the Filipino professionals to continuously challenge themselves and maintain the competitive edge needed in a rapidly changing world.

He reiterated the embassy’s efforts to support Filipino professionals in Bahrain towards becoming ASEAN Engineers, beginning with the orientation program, seminars on how to complete and submit their applications, and examinations and interviews by the PTC.

The conferees are members of four engineering professional organisations — the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE) Bahrain Chapter, PICE-Eastern Province Saudi Arabia Chapter (PICE-EPSA), Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP) Bahrain Chapter, and Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers (IIEE) Kuwait Chapter.
