Saudi Arabia Announces SR 100,000 (PKR 8 Million) Fine Who Used Title of Engineer on Social Media Without Degree

In a recent event in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Council of Engineers (SCE), a body overseeing engineering professions, unearthed a deceptive act. They found a Syrian expatriate falsely claiming to be an engineer on various social media sites. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the clearance from the SCE, which he needed to use the title of an engineer rightfully.


This act breaks the rules stated in Article 11 of the Engineering Professions Practice Law. This law forbids any person from pretending to be an engineer without the proper qualifications.


Upon discovering the imposter, the SCE acted swiftly and responsibly. They followed the Engineering Professions Practice Law guidelines to ensure the offender faced the proper legal repercussions. The case was then turned over to the Public Prosecution, and the imposter was justly dealt with.


The result? The impersonator was sentenced to half a year in prison. Moreover, he was slapped with a hefty fine of SR100,000 for his illegal deeds.


This situation underscores the significance of abiding by professional standards and securing the right accreditation before taking on the role of an engineer in Saudi Arabia. The careful monitoring by the SCE helps to preserve the respect and trustworthiness of the engineering profession in the nation.
