  6. Electronics and Communication Engineering
  7. Mechanical Engineering
  8. Materials and Metallurgical Engineering
  9. Mining Engineering
  10. Production Engineering
  11. Textile Engineering
Who can register for Section B ?

There are two catagory of candidates who are eligible for Section B Registration.

1. All those who passed Section A examination (ST or T members) can apply for Section B registration.

2. B.Tech/B.E/M.Tech/M.E holders who have already got AM Registration and wish to take degree in another branch of engineering may also apply for Section B Registration.

Additional Degree in Engineering

Are you a B.Tech/B.E holder in any engineering descipline (say Electronics Engg) ? You can take an additional degree (say in Civil Engg) through AMIE. They can appear for AMIE examination at any center and when they clear certain number of subjects they get another degree in engineering !! The procedure is very simple.

Who is eligible?

B.Tech/B.E holders from recognized university, no mark restriction.


In order to get an additional degree , first you must apply for 'Associate Membership' of Institution of Engineers. After getting associate membership you must register for Section B part of AMIE. While registering for Section B, you can choose any desired branch of engineering. After Registering for Section B, you can apply and appear for Section B examination of your choosen branch of engineering. When you clear 9 subjects in Section B examination, you get an additional AMIE degree in your choosen branch.

Step 1. Apply for 'Associate Membership'.To become an "Associate Member",download, print out and fill up
"application form to become Associate Member"
