SE versus PE Civil-Structural

Recommended Posts

I recently recieved approval from Georgia to take the 16 hour Structural Exam. I registered for the PE Civil-Structural. However, as I found out Georgia does not offer PE Civil Structural, even though most of the surrounding states do offer it. Am I obligated to take the SE or can I take the Civil Structural in another state (i.e. Florida where I received my EIT)? I really don't need an SE and have already purhased all the materials for the Civil Structural exam. Not the mention the 27% pass rate for the SE....yikes!

GA is one of those states that keeps track of your engineering discipline. (More and more states are starting to do this.)

If you are looking to practice structures in GA, then I would recommend taking the SE you can actually be licensed there.

You might not think this, but phasing out the civil/structural exam might be a good thing got SE's everywhere.
