>>7854408 It IS a protected title. Software devs. regularly get fined for putting engineer on their business card. Your firm/business will can get fined if you do too.
The problem is there's no body activily enforcing it, so normal citiizens have to report it and what happens next depends on the state despite it being covered as a federal law under the CPA. Then again I don't believe there's a federal body that travels the country side making sure house doctors all have professional registration either.
>>7854413 >2.3 As expected. With the rampant grade inflation that amounts to failing. Unhireable, he might as well not have a degree.
>>7854451 Because it was probably a shitty tech job with an engineering sticker.
>>7854453 It's federally protected, but some states are anal and the feds don't want to have yet another thing to fight over. In any case if you want to do consulting or get a job at any half decent company which isn't some countryside shithole you will need to conform to the regulations.
>in some countries Yeah, but most countries generally have laws distinguishing between professional engineering and "engineering", in any case if you work for an international company it again matters because they don't want to get in get trouble from countries they operate in.

Maybe, here anyone can call themselves engineers. Hell you don't even need any particular qualification (provided it's in mathematics, physics or engineering) to become a chartered engineer, only a decade (I think) work experience.
>>7854526 Yes I've seen that posted on /sci/ by nervous undergrads, but have you read the bureaucratic nightmare that constitutes that many years worth of experience? There's several requirements on the type of experience you need, which is not just engineering problem solving/design, but also a certain type of management/supervision experience, r&d (which need engineering research not just science or lab monkeying) etc. The key point you need all of them and you need to do it under other CEs who will back you up and need to review your reports etc. you can't have a lot of gaps. Things you won't get if you aren't working under a CE mentor in a company with money to burn on your training. You sure as hell won't be hired into that type of job without an engineering qualification unless you have a very generous uncle/daddy.
I'm from the UK, I've never heard of anyone becoming a CE without going through the usual grind. There are pathway open, but they are only open in theory not in practice because it's impossible to do all thaf. If you read all the requirements you'll quickly realize the only way in hell someone would hire you into that is if they are willing to train a CE as a long term investment so they can have cheaper CEs working for them.
>>7856274 Reality is this, you see new machines and objects manufactured everyday. Someone creates that shit. If you are good enough you can do that too. But first, you somehow need to get experience or just be lucky.
