Fire Protection here. Is that Civil?

The only program I found in my state grants Engineering Technology degrees instead of the 'standard' engineering degree so I switched to Civil. I've two or more years left in the program and I don't think I'll return to get any more degrees. :burgerking:

That's what I do, too. It was covered in the MERM, so I'm guessing Mechie.

I've been told I can sit for the Fire Protection PE exam after graduation + requisite experience. Looking over the summary I know most of the material or at least am familiar with it.

Does that sound right?

I don't know if one could say, graduate in Mechanical and sit for a Civil exam or vice versa?

You can be "other" :-D I have no idea where that fits. Lucky for you, you'll probably always be an other in these types of surveys...

And you can take whatever PE you want, you just have to have the experience to back it up.

Sorry I missed this.

In my neck of the woods, the only people who get the Fire Protection PE are the ones doing federal work. I guess there are some who take it just to have the FP PE, but mech or civvie PE's can work on fire protection systems if they are competant in the area.

Not meaning to bump an old post, but since it gets bumped with each new poll refresh I might as well ask:

What do you usually do with the FPE? I think you mentioned getting the ME PE.

I typically do fire sprinkler/alarm layout and I know a PE isn't really required except for, as you said, federal work. We usually send our stuff out to have a PE stamp our drawings when required.

Career wise, I know the big money is closely tied to working in the oil industry. I know the guys who go out on the platforms make a high income, but I'm not sure I want to be away from my family for months. I'm basically looking for a way to plan something lucrative and I know lots of fire protection is hokey (ie two identical retard chambers, one for plumbing and one for FP, the FP one having the ubiquitous "FM" stamp costing 3x as much).

The counselors at school know little about fire protection and I happened into it by accident and love it and would like to pursue it. I do stuff to FM standards all the time, I wonder if those review guys at FM do well.

I suppose I'd be a contractor, insurance co. reviewer, designer or inspector. I'd also like to add I've looked at the SFPE stuff and I'm wondering if they have a proofreader. It seems a bastard child of industrial, mechanical and civil, kinda like petroleum is a bastard child of geo, mech and civil. I really enjoy it, I'm just not sure what I'd do with the thing or what my options are.

Riddle me this.

THree People have met "several" EB comers in real life. I take it several means at least three.

Two people have met only one EB.comer. Therefore, those people could only have met one of the three, or each other. But if they met each other, then that means that the three couldn't have met them, and only met within the group of three. So they could only have met two people. o, doing the combinations and permutations,

Oh, never mind, I'm getting dizzy.

I'm pretty sure that the answer has something to do with airplanes and conveyors.
