Dear Shri Modak ji,

   To get the Licence to work as practicing Structural Engineer (consultant), in Mumbai, you may visit the BMC ofiice, Building Proposals Dept, at Bhykhala, Nr. Fire brigade building. A sample copy of the application format can be collected from the clerk there (Mr. Gawali).

   Before submitting the form, back to BMC office, please ensure that you attach Recommendation from other 'Licenced' Structural engineer. the format of the RECO also is available with the same dept.

   Apart from the RECO, other documents viz. Academic certificates, Professional experience etc. may be attached in photocopy if asked. After submitting the complete form, you will be called for the personal interview as per your form number. (Usually the Interviews are conducted on last 'Thursday' of each month). Do not forget to mention your contact cell number on the form, and a PP size photograph.

   Don't be surprised if you hear / listen hard, or harsh words there.

wish you all the best
regards
Vivek Abhyankar

Dear Er. Abhyankar,

Thank you for the guidance. It is a sad state of affairs when we have to add words of caution like "Don't be surprised if you hear / listen hard, or harsh words there" when talking of government offices. I count myself among those fortunate enough not to have to deal with municipal authorities. However, I would like to hear from senior colleagues their opinion of why this state of affairs exists and how it can be changed.

We engineers always address each other with utmost courtesy in our professional exchanges, even when projects are delayed and everyone is feeling the heat. Besides, without meaning to sound smug, we are generally better qualified than the pencil pushers in these government organizations.

So why is it that - in a country which claims to exalt learning and respect wisdom - we who are learned and (somewhat) wise cannot expect to be addressed courteously by a mere clerk in a government office?

Dear Nilesh,

   please do not call me as 'sir' etc., because I find we are of almost same exp. (and hence guess we are of same age group too).

   The bhyculla office is open from Monday to Friday and all odd saturdays (1st, 3rd, 5th). Working Time 11am to 5:00pm (with a long Lunch break). If you need more details then please email me at - abhy_vivek@yahoo.com or you may even call me over phone.

Dear Mr Shetyenitin,

What do you mean by "structural license for G+4"? Are you an engineer or want to develop a building?

Best wishes,
NS

I am requesting to Licensed Structural Engineers of MCGM to upload an application form copy on this website along with details of requirement. The application form is not available in the website of MCGM.

Thanks in advance.

PostPosted: Thu Jun 25, 2015 6:18 pm    Post subject: Have to take 16 hrs. written Exam in US to get S.E. licen Reply with quote

Dear  Sefi  Engrs.,
Getting a Structural License is little different in USA.  I am a license Structural Engineer in Illinois State of USA.  This is what I had to do after my 3  years ( with  Masters Degree  otherwise 4 years experience) of Structural Engineering:
"Beginning with the April 2011 exam administration, theexamination for licensure as a structural engineer shall be divided into 2  Parts.
1) Fundamentals of Engineering.  This examination shall consist of problems or other examining techniques designed to evaluate the applicant's knowledge of the basic and engineering sciences and related subjects normally considered as the fundamentals of engineering.
2)  16-hour Structural Examination. This examination shall consist of two 8-hour components: the Vertical Forces(gravity/other) and Incidental Lateral component and the Lateral Forces(wind/earthquake) component.  An applicant must receive acceptable results on both 8-hour components to pass the Structural examination.  An applicant may sit for each component in separate exam administrations but must receive acceptable results on both components within a five-year period.  The problems may include, but not be limited to, bridges, buildings, foundations,or the practice of structural engineering as described in Section 5 of the Act.  This examination replaces the Structural I and Structural II examinations."

Please note  a  License Structural Engineer ( Engineer of  Record)  has to Sign and Seal all Structural Drawing issued for construction. He can not pass the buck as we say, if something goes wrong with the structure.  He alone goes to the court to represent Structural  Side  if there is a Law Suit.  

Regards.
