State-by-State Summary of the Requirements for Engineering Registration.
National Society of Professional Engineers, Washington, DC.
A review of the state requirements for engineering education reveals that the laws vary a great deal from state to state. Many laws contain special peculiarities that reflect various opinions about what constitutes the appropriate credentials for registration and reflect differing views concerning the methods as well as the importance of examinations. Therefore, a state-by-state summary of the significant portions of the registration laws is provided. These requirements are listed under the following categories (when applicable) for each state: (1) requirements for certification as an engineer-in-training (EII) or engineer-intern (EI); (2) requirements for registration as a professional engineer (PE); (3) requirements and methods for registration under a "long-established practice (LEP) clause"; and (4) requirements for registration under an "eminence" (E) clause. Some general factors to keep in mind when using the summary are included. (JN)
