Institution of Engineers
The Institution of Engineers (India) (IEI) was established in Madras in 1920. In 1935, it obtained the Royal Charter from King-Emperor George V to promote and advance the art, science and practice of engineering and technology in India.
The Institution has been prominent amongst the founder members of the Commonwealth Engineers' Council (CEC) and the Federation of Engineering Institutions of South and Central Asia (FEISCA). The Institution has a provisional membership of the Engineers Mobility Forum since 2003.
Today, the Institution is head-quartered in Kolkata, with 94 state and local centres. It has half a million members (of which about 84,500 are corporate members). Life corporate members of the Institution are accredited with the Chartered Engineer title.
