I'm now applying for Civil PE registration in CA (I have all my qualifying experience). One year of my qualifying experience was in MA under a licensed Environmental PE. Obviously Environmental is a subset of Civil, but since there's a specific Environmental PE title in MA, I'm concerned about whether his reference will be valid for my civil app here in CA. From the CA PE application FAQ, for an applicant seeking registration as a civil PE, "all references must be licensed engineers authorized to practice civil engineering." From the Code of Massachusetts Regulations 250 CMR 5.01(3) "Engineering Registrants must restrict engineering practice to areas of competence based upon their education and experience qualifications." The way I read this, if my former boss is competent to practice civil engineering in MA, he's a valid reference for my CA civil PE app. Do I need to have him write a letter in addition to stamping my engagement form stating the above to the CA Board? I'm applying my Master's Degree in Civil Engineering as part of my qualifying experience. CA states that a reference is required for all qualifying experience. Does that mean that my grad school professors registered as PE's can serve as qualifying references for me? Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help you choose to give me!
Hello Community, I recently returned from being a Peace Corps volunteer in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador for two years. Now I am back in the states and am looking for a job. I have a BS in Civil Engineering and also interned at the engineering water department for a large utility. I am looking for a job but every job that I might be interested states that they want an FE. I have not been able to pass it yet but am going to attempt again in 6 months. What kind of positions can I apply for if I dont have the FE exam? Do you recomend appliying for positions that say must have FE or is this just a waste of time? Right now I took a dead end customer service job in order to survive but I reallly want to get back into Engineering. What type of position can I be qualified for? What strategies should I use to get a job? I have included a copy of my resume and it would be awesome to get some feedback. thank you eng forum Resume 1.3.doc
Hi everyone, My basic question is this: I have a liberal arts bachelor's degree, and a master's in electrical engineering from a university in Korea. Would passing the FE allow/help me to enter the EE job market (In the U.S., where I'm from, originally)? Other issues I'm not quite sure about are (1) passing the exam in the first place, and (2), being allowed to take the exam. Regarding these, I'm planning (tentatively), to study for the October 2013 test,which should give me enough time, and I understand that Michigan neither regulates test takers, nor certifies those who pass, while New Hampshire does the latter, only. My areas of study in graduate school were dye-sensitized solar cells and power electronics, and I'm currently 28 years old. I appreciate any input or advice you can give me.
