Licensing Procedure
In India, engineers with a bachelor's or master's degree in engineering or technology from a university are allowed to practice as consulting engineers—They must be licensed or registered with municipali-ties in order to submit public plans, designs or drawings for approval and record. If you want to practice civil engineering in any district, then you need to get license from municipality of that district. National Level Licenses are being issued by Institution of Engineers. The Institution of Engineers (India) was granted British Royal Charter in 1935, and admits engineers holding the above degrees as a corpo-rate member (AMIE). They can also be admitted as chartered engineer or professional engineer who have seven years of active practical engineering experience after achieving their degrees.
Internship in Civil Engineering is as important a part of the curriculum as theory papers. It will give you a practical experience assisting senior engineers on real projects. This experience can be gained at different construction sites, government/private departments, dif-ferent manufacturing plants etc. There are even opportunities at IITs for internships (e.g. Civil Engi-neering Society at IIT Delhi). Whether the internship is paid or not will depend upon the place from where one is doing internship.
