Professional Engineering Exam Empty Professional Engineering Exam

Post  dexman1349 on Tue Apr 15, 2008 4:17 pm

I'm sure everyone here knows I'm an engineer. Well, last friday (the 11th) was the Professional Engineers (P.E.) exam. Basically, if I pass this exam, then I can legally practice engineering in Colorado on my own. It's kinda like the board exams for Lawyers or doctors. Right now I am what's called and Engineer Intern, which requires that I work under the direct supervision of a licensed engineer.

Anyways, both Jeff (jc_hammy) and I took this 8 hour beast last week. I think we both managed to do well enough to maintain hope that we passed, but not so good that I can guarantee a pass. Here's to hoping!!

Nice! Hope it works out and keep us updated. Reminds me of when I took the MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) but I doubt it was as difficult as the test you took.

To give you an idea of what the test is like, I brought a small library (~12-15 books) worth of reference material. The main book I used is about the size of a dictionary and contains almost cover to cover tables, graphs, equations, and procedures. I'll try to remember to bring it to the house game Keith is hosting. I've been studying for this at a rate of about 10 hours per week for the last 3 months.

It's now down to a 6 week wait while the state gets all of their records updated, licenses printed, and all the other admin crap done...

That didn't stop me. It was a six-month internship in Peoria my senior year that made me change my mind! Laughing

I have a high school diploma...

I fucking hate school.....everytime I think about going back, I remember how bad I hate it...weird thing is my brother is the exact opposite....

if I had any sort of passion for anything career related maybe I could do it, but at this point there is none. I don't know that there is any job out there that I would not hate after some time though....

unless they start offering careers in doing absolutly nothing...no schoo for dis foo.. Smile

One thing that was good about W was that he got people like me to vote. because I don't want that to ever happen again....and you can't bitch about it if you don't vote right? Very Happy
