    As the others have indicated, there are alternate paths to sit for the test depending on your State Board.

    Mine was in Delaware and I was qualified to take the exam by having the PE license for 10 years, and I worked with the Board for the annual inspections at the industrial facility where I was employed so I had contacts.

    Good luck.

    It's a great career.

He may get some credit for his degree.

    Ansel, I just noticed you're in NY. Are you looking for a NY state license or a NY city license? Makes a difference.
    I was looking into maybe both. Either way, I have to wait a few years for my PE. I just don't know how I can work under an EC working in an office as an EE. I guess it is harder now to get the Masters license.
