    Tutorials / Lessons for Reading Electrical Prints and Control Wiring Diagrams

    I'm a mechanical engineer, if something is broken my first method of solution is to hit it with a hammer.  If that doesn't work, get a bigger hammer :)   But I would like to have a better understanding on how to read and understand wiring diagrams especially related to controls and relaying...

    Resources for Welding

    Anyone have good suggestions on reference books for welding? This is not for the PE exam. I want something that can help me choose and size welds based on the application (for example what size fillet weld do I need between two plates that have x amount of stress).

    PE Stamp Requires Approval?

    I'm going to get my stamp a few years after passing the exam. So I no longer have the paperwork from when I passed. I'm going to order the stamp from so I'm reasonably sure that it will meet requirements. But do I still need to send a copy of the stamp to the Engineering...

    Using PE in an Industry That Doesn't Require It?

    Does anyone work in an industry that doesn't require a PE License? Do you still include the PE after your name on email signatures? It's about a 50/50 split here between those who do and those who don't.

    Has Anyone Worked at a Startup?

    I found a positon at a company that's just starting that seems very interesting. But, there is some risk. I'd be leaving a very secure job for this. Has anyone worked for a startup engineering firm? How did you like it? Did it ultimately succeed or fail? Is experience at a startup well...

    PE vs. FE

    Since we recently finished another round of testing and have gotten our results back... I'm curious what everyone's opinions are on the exams. I took the FE just last year, several years after graduation. I thought it was far more difficult than the PE exam. There were so many subjects to...

    Any Engineering Supervisors?

    So my supervisor is leaving in 6 or so months and has asked if I'd like to replace him. I'm trying to figure out if this is a career move I want to make. I'm the youngest one (by far) in my group, but "know the system" and get along with everyone in the group. So I'm sure I'd do a good job...

    April 2011 FE Exam

    So how do you think you did? I took the general afternoon exam and am not feeling too confident about it :( I did a good amount of studying for the exam (graduated 7 years ago), but I didn't study Engineering Economics and only studied a little for probability. Those are two subjects I never...
