Yes, it's possible but you have to furnish your degree attested from Saudi Chamber of commerce. Bare in mind that change your profession when you have the relevant job also otherwise it will go in an illegal act.

Yes Brother you can change your profession.but it depends on your company either they have engineer category available or not.you have to attest your degree from Saudi culture & Saudi embassy in Pakistan,in Saudi you have to register first in Saudi Engineering Council than you can change your profession.

Sister the requirements for changing profession to engineer is,1. he have to attest his degree from Saudi Culture and Saudi Embassy in Home Country 2. He have to register in Saudi Engineering Council in Saudi Arabia 3. after registration get a letter from Saudi Engineering Council. 4. attested degree + Saudi Engineering Council letter+Application for change of profession and submit the case in Labor office to change the profession.
