Technological Association of Malaysia (TAM), had its origin as Technical Association in 1932 before the Second World War, is officially incorporated on 15.04.1946. It is an organisation representing the interests of all technical professionals, crafts and trades as well as all grades of personnel from technicians up to the highest professional’s technologist from all levels and discipline, whose career is technological in nature.
ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation (AFEO) appointed TAM as the sole Malaysian sovereign professional technical association to accept candidates for the registration with AFEO as ASEAN Engineering Technologists, Technicians and Associates. With liberisation of the service sector within ASEAN by 2015, the above will enjoy greater mobility.
In order for our industry to compete at global level, engineering graduates need to be developed and nurtured to engage latest and relevant knowledge and skills as they advance. Through TAM, the professional engineering practitioners will be certified by setting approved development and continuous training.
