Engineering success for Simon and Jumaa
Congratulations to Simon Elieza and Jumaa Malalo from RSK’s East African business, who have successfully achieved Registered Professional Engineer status with the Engineers’ Registration Board (ERB) in Tanzania.
The ERB is the statutory body responsible for monitoring and regulating engineering activities and the conduct of engineers and engineering consultancy firms in Tanzania. Its mission is “to regulate engineering practice in Tanzania and promote engineering excellence amongst local engineers and engineering consulting firms, with a view to enhancing their competitiveness and professionalism in engineering practice.”

Simon and Jumaa’s registrations were completed at the 96th ERB ordinary board meeting held on 26 February, which was chaired by Eng. Prof. Ninatubu M. Lema. To be registered, Simon and Jumaa had to hold bachelor’s degrees in engineering and have at least three years’ professional experience under the supervision of a professional engineer. The application process involved preparing a practical training report showing proven experience in design, fieldwork and management, and submitting an application form and academic and professional certificates.
“Congratulations to Simon and Jumaa for the tireless efforts they put into completing the ERB registration,” comments Omari Hassani, RSK head of profession (HoP) for engineering in Tanzania, East Africa, who supported Simon and Jumaa through the process. “I wish them all the very best in their future careers. This success is a fantastic example of why RSK is expanding its HoP network internationally: we hope to have more international employees achieving registered and chartered status in their chosen fields soon.”
