    When You Should Add PE After Your Name

    Just start using it - you passed the exam. As long as you don't put a Seal with your name on an engineering document you won't be violating any of the Ethics (or in some cases State) rules/laws. Obviously, you have to wait until your license number is actually assigned (continuously check your State professional licensing Webpage), to order your seal. Also, if your State offered PE License plates (as New York does), you will need a copy of your actual State registration certificate before you can put in an order for them. Congratulations, and don't worry about the little things anymore - only the jealous or slighted (and I'm not only talking about those 'without' a PE - you will see) would even think of question it

    Possible to learn score?

    I understand that the scores are provided to the State Boards, however most will not share them with the applicants. I know that's the case for New York, since after I passed and it was taking soooo long to get my license issued, I gave them a call and they confirmed they got my scores for both the FE and the PE. However, when I asked if they could share those numbers with me, they informed me it was against their policy to do that. Maybe if you can befriend someone at NCEES or your State board you can find out.

    NCEES Review for Work Experience

    engineer123, to answer both your questions: 1) Yes, they asked about 80% of the folks I work with who applied to "add additional detail" and/or "explain further that this work was engineering related." 2) I honestly don't believe it has anything to do with which exam you choose to sit for - it seems to be more closely related to how they read your specific experience.

    Computer Engineering Prep

    Congratulations ChebyshevII Welcome to the club - the club of PE's part of the least certified group of EE's. One thing that did result is my renewed interest in the hardware and firmware design fields. I bought a Terasic DE-10 design board as part of my preparation for the exam, and I just finished building an experimenters box with it's multiple power supplies/adapters and multiple bread boarding options on a large Plexiglas top cover. Now I am almost done assembling a new high performance desktop PC (Intel i7 8700 6-core chip, 16gig Memory, SSD and M.2 drives) where I will be installing multiple operating systems and doing some Verilog/VHDL designs. I just need an increased budget to take that all where I would like to get it.

    Thank you EngineerBoards.com!

    Now you should 'Pay Forward' and help those in line behind you

    Life: Pre-exam then post-exam

    I have forever been trying to get my 'Hobby Room' (workshop) organized again, but I was derailed first by earning my MBA then by going for the FE&PE. Oh well, maybe when I retire.

    NCEES Review for Work Experience

    I found them to be very fast - less than a week. I submitted the experience for two jobs, and unfortunately they must have been reviewed by two different individuals since one said it was fine and the other had issues.

    Lost April 2018 test pencil

    I had mine taken away from me at the end of the test by a proctor, so I reached out to the test administrative company, Castle Worldwide, through Email and they sent me three of them (one new and two used). I wound up framing the new one with my state issued parchment certificate. You could reach out to Castle, but if you can't get any from them send me a private Email (through EB) and I will mail you one of the two extra I have.

    NY State

    You can go ahead and call the Office of the Professionals in NYS Education department, but I would suggest waiting a couple of weeks, since they wait for a database transfer from NCEES to be completed before they begin processing the license issue. However give them a call then (a couple of weeks) and ask if there are any issues with your application. When I called about a month after receiving the NCEES 'Passed' message, they looked up my application in the queue and a very helpful lady asked me several questions, including: Have I ever had a license revoked or suspended? Did I have at least six months left on my Drivers license renewal? Have I moved? Do I have any criminal convictions or arrests (arrests in the last year)? Once I gave the lady the answers she was hoping for, she verified that my application had not been submitted more than 5-years ago, and of course my scores for the FE and PE (which she did not reveal), then she told me I should be fine when they get to my application queue position (supposedly based upon the order in which NCEES listed my scores). She would not tell me where I was in that queue however. Keep checking the license lookup site at: http://www.op.nysed.gov/opsearches.htm (using Profession of Engineer or Professional Engineer). Also, congratulations for your success

    NY State

    I went through that last May. My fingernails are only now showing signs of coming back to life. I wish all my fellow New York sufferers the best of luck If any of you downstate are planning a celebration, please let me in on it.

    NY State application

    I used mostly bullets, however In most cases I led off (or ended) a section with a regular paragraph. For example: Atlas Project Maintenance and Support Phase 00 yrs 11 mos. Entered a steady-state phase of the Atlas project, which included: Continuous software engineering improvements to enhance functionality, usability, maintainability, and performance Training new application developers in the effective use of the Atlas ‘Flow’programming language while creating and modifying bank applications based on the Atlas architecture Porting Atlas to additional variants of the Unix operating system, such as Linux and Windows workstations Improvements and expansion of the Atlas API allowing use in many more back-office software and application uses Note: The Atlas architecture was a notable success for Manufacturers Hanover Trust and Chemical Bank. Atlas was used by the merged entity in both the Branches and back-office for over 15 years after its initial pilot deployment.

    October 2018 PE Exam Takers

    I think it will be this week - probably Wednesday or Thursday. I wish everyone who had to sit there for those 8-hours the best of luck
  14. I'm so sorry to have to see that :(

    October 2018 PE Exam Takers

    My thumb in the air (and not stating where I pulled it from) is next Wednesday. I wish every luck and hoping 'the suck' ends quickly for all of you from this point.
