  1. Hi, I am from CA and I am planning to registrar as a PE in the State. While I think that I have qualifying experiences (engineering work for more than 3 years after completing my Civil PhD), the people I worked under did not have a PE license. Now, as CA board wants at least 4 reference letter with at least one from your supervisor (PE), I need your help with how to proceed. I am wondering if you all good people have any advice for me. Thank you!
  2. Hi All, I saw 2 conflicting answers on this, so wanted to confirm which one. When I convert from Delta transformer to Wye, does my voltage across line and neutral (Vln) in wye remain the same as delta phase voltage (Vab) or does it get divided by root 3 (Vln= Vab/ root 3). Also do the phase angle get shifted by -30deg? Any reference will also help. Thanks in advance.

  4. Below is the list of books I'm selling. I took the test in October this year and passed using most all of these. I also have the current Civil Engineering Reference manual Listed on Ebay but will sell outside if wanted, forgot I had an account here when I started the listing. I put together the list of books I had and searched the web to see what the cheapest prices out there are right now on amazon or ppi or where ever and I have tried to list mine a little cheaper. The CERM is listed on ebay for $200+Shipping right now. Below is my book list and asking price. All of these are cheaper than I found anywhere on amazon or PPI or ebay. If someone wants it all we can work out a better deal and I'll throw in the NCEES Construction practice exam that they sell for like $30 or $40 with the package. It has some pencil marking on it, but still in great shape. Quick reference for Civil PE 9th edition $70.00 Construction Depth Reference manual 2nd edition $145.00 6 minute solutions Civil PE construction Depth problems 2nd edition $55.00 Construction Depth Practice Exams 2nd Edition: $50.00 Civil Engineering Solved Problems 8th $45.00 Civil PE Practice Examination 6th Edition $75.00 Engineering Unit Conversions 4th Edition $20.00 April 2017 Edition 29 CFR 1926 OSHA Construction Industry Regulations $25.00 ASCE 37-14 Design Loads on Structures During Construction $50.00 ACI SP-4 Formwork For Concrete 8th Edition $200.00 All my books are in great shape, some paper back books may have a light crease on the cover from being opened and used like any paperback. In a few of the books there is some very light pencil marking, but that's only on very few pages and only a few of the books. If I get time I may even clean it up, just trying to represent it all accurately. I have pictures but they are on my phone not on my work computer, best advice is pm me with your email and I can email them to you of any books you want to see. Prices are OBO but do not include shipping. I'm guessing shipping to be between $2-$4.00 but I'm not sure until have envelopes and zip codes. I'm in Hampstead NC(near Wilmington NC), open to local pickup, or will ship. Thanks!
  5. I'm taking the PE exam for Industrial Engineering next week and freaking out. I don't know anyone else who has taken it, and can't find anyone online either who has. Was only able to find one study guide and practice exam. Has anyone here taken it, or going to take it? What study materials are you using? How many reference books are you bringing? Any feedback helps, thanks!
  6. They changed the refile date for the Civil PE Exam to "continuous filing". I emailed the Board and they have not gotten back to me. Does anyone know what this means as far as the last date to go onto NCEES and register for the exam?? Surely you wouldn't be able to pay the day before the test (April 13th, 2018). There must be some kind of cut off right?? I would like to register on the later side... because life is always throwing me loops and I've had to "No Show" before and lose my 350 bucks. Thanks for any help!

  8. I'm trying to get an FE Waiver in CA and have a few questions and I'm wondering if anyone here can help as I'm waiting for a phone call back from the board. I'm an EE with over 20 years of experience in an exempt environment. So this translates to having only one reference that has a stamp and a true struggle to find sups/managers that aren't dead or retired (I wish I was joking about the dead part sadly). 1. "In responsible charge" seems to be a licensed PE term/classification. How do I translate this for my exempt references? The application says (http://www.bpelsg.ca.gov/pubs/forms/peapp.pdf): "At least one of the licensed references must be from a person in responsible charge over the applicant for each engagement for which the applicant desires credit." 2. Do I need to provide references for all my engagements? I have experience performing work outside of electrical engineering, including my current job which is civil. 3. What should my exemption references say in the fill-in-the-blank after "I am legally exempt from licensure because" ......... ? Does anyone else have any advice as to how to help your reference fill out the form when they are likely not familiar with the terminology in the form. I'm worried it will be a barrier to getting these back. TIA, Jennifer

  11. Chemical PE

    Just wanted to share, something that helped me a lot to study is the "PE Chemical Reference Handbook", available for free from NCEES: The PE Chemical Reference Handbook is now available for download. It contains charts, formulas, tables, and other information that may help you answer questions on the PE Chemical exam. However, it does not contain all information required to answer every question; theories, conversions, formulas, and definitions that examinees are expected to know have not been included. Log into MyNCEES to download your free copy. The only downside is that you have to print it out...
  12. Has anyone had any issues trying to get a decent explanation as to why their experience write up in New York State was discredited? I put in for 7 years and 11 months of engineering experience and they only gave me credit for four years. (I need six years with an engineering technology degree.) I have called and emailed the New York State Department of Education multiple times and they refuse to give me detailed answers as to why they would not count some of my experience, and which pieces of experience did not count. All I want is to know where my experience fell short, and if my current position has been counted as 100% so that I know to apply again in two years. They told me that the process is held in confidentiality. I feel like if they felt strongly enough to knock time off my application that they should stand behind it and give me some reasons....I feel like this top-secret process gives too much power to a few people's biases or egos and that they can make up any excuse to deny someone... One tidbit of information that I was able to get out of the secretary on the phone was that they did not count my experience that occurred before my Bachelors Degree. They said that the work I did during school doesn't count because it is part of the Bachelors degree process, but the work I did was completely separate from my degree... I feel like that is an absolute garbage reason to knock a year of experience off. You are able to become a PE without any degree in NYS...why doesn't my summer work count? I have emailed my assemblyman & the state senator in my district because I feel that for my $400 write up fee, I am entitled to find out why I was denied...If you are going to tell me I suck, you better be able to tell me why I suck. I am all fired up and on the warpath now...Has anyone else had any negative run ins with NYS?
  13. Help: EET Course - On Demand

    I signed up for the EET on demand course (structural depth) and starting it today. Is there a class schedule that I can follow? I feel like I’m missing something. I was given the instructions on how to reach the videos and then the big binder and that’s it. I don’t even know where to start. The recording contents are in no particular order and I’m finding myself trying to search for the appropriate video title for the first section of the binder. I take it we just dive right in and start from beginning to end with what’s in the binder? Please help if any of you have taken the on demand course or are taking it now.

  19. I apologize as this is likely in another forum somewhere. I recently passed all tests in California and received my PE (civil). However, I did this based on work experience (going on 12 years now) and not having a 4 year degree. I have a 2 year degree in Architecture. Many jobs list a 4 year degree as a requirement. In your experience, especially with hiring, is this a 'boilerplate' requirement? Would it be disingenuous to even apply for such a job without the degree and give them the option to not follow up? My rational is that after many years working, we all forget the finer points of our education, and need a refresher if we don't use it day to day. So what is the difference with a degree vs no degree if the license and experience show competency.
