If anyone can help me, it is much appreciated. I contacted the board and their answer was very vague and I don't want to have my application kicked back. Here is my situation: I graduated in Dec. 2014 with my master's in civil engineering. After graduation I worked at a construction project management firm where I was not doing design work (no qualifying experience). After that, I was hired as a civil engineer. I have been at this company for currently 18 months (enough qualifying experience to apply in California). I have been on the same project for 18 months, with the same supervisor. All of my other references will be co-workers that I work side by side with. 1) Do I have to write about the non-qualifying experience in Section 2 of the application, or should I just mention it in the blank space below? It says there should be no gaps except for unemployment. Again, it was not under a licensed PE and does not make sense to me if I have to get a reference from my previous supervisor. And as it says on Section 2 of Engagement Summary and References, "All the names of your reference must be listed on this page". If I have to write my old job as engagement 2 and list my old supervisor, do I have to use them as a reference? 2) Does the qualifying experience (18 months) only get listed under my current supervisor's engagement form/section of the application? i.e. Do I put 0 months under my other references? FYI, this was the board's reply, " The engagement record portion of the forms must be completed in sufficient detail to allow the Board to determine that the nature and the extent of the engineering work claimed to have been performed by the applicant has indeed been qualifying . " Thanks for the clarification California... Thank you.
I am applying for the California Civil PE. I am trying to fill out my Engagement Record form. I am confused what to put in the "Description of Engineering Decisions Made" section. There seems to be some overlap between what is good for civil engineers to say vs what is good for mechanical engineers to say. E.g. piping outside of a building is civil engineering but piping inside of a building is mechanical engineering. Since I am applying for the CIVIL PE, what "Engineering Decisions" are considered civil (to be clear, this is general civil, NOT traffic, structural, or geotechnical). - Is sizing pumps civil? Is choosing flow meters civil? Any suggestions? Thank you!
I was unsuccessful in applying for the PE Exam. The BOE did not give me any credits for my engagements. I have a few questions about the application: 1) The company I work for does not have a P.E.. I work with P.E.s daily and under their directions, but the P.E.s are not my boss nor work in my company. Can they be my reference and verify engineering work for my engagement? 2) Comments came back said "insufficient info/detail to determine if engagement is civil engineering work experience". What are some of the key words you put in your application for engineering work? Design? Calculation? Decision making? 3) Another comments came back said " @XYZ Company, Unclear who employer & Supervisor are". This is probably due to the issue in my questions #1. I called the board of engineering and they said, "If you don't have a PE in your company, technically your company is not practicing Engineering". I was so bumped to hear because I don't have to change company just to be able to take the exam. I then called my good friend who has a PE, and he said that is B.S.. He said, I can get verify by people from other companies that you are working with in the project. I hope someone here can clear this up. I just might have to change company to get a PE......? Thanks in advance. Hugo
