Engineers in the country will now be required to log in and register the projects they are handling.
Chairman of the Engineers Board of Kenya, Eng. Erastus Mwongera, says this will help to create a transparent and accountable system for tracking and monitoring engineering projects.
The board explains that this will also serve as a centralized platform where engineers can conveniently register their documentation, a move that will rid the profession of quacks.
Low registration rate, consumption, and delivery are some of the challenges that have rocked the engineering profession.
