I have been waiting to see responses from other, more experienced engineers that i look to for guidance. I consider myself a young structural engineer with much to learn from more experienced engineers so i am disappointed in this lack of response. I can not overstate how proud i am to have acheived the right to use the title structural engineer two years ago. I felt honored that three engineers recommended i be allowed to take the test. I studied nights and weekends and whenever i was not working for several months before the two days of testing.I took off work for most of a month before the test. Also, I took the class down in Long Beach driving over an hour each way every Sat. for months. It was a large amount of work, sacrifice, and cost. This was all after i had ten years of experience out of school. I understand that having the title structural engineer does not necessarily mean i know more than civil engineers without the S.E. title. I know from the times i have called the BORPELS, that unless an engineer or consumer complains, no action will be taken. Consumers usually don't know the difference. I believe it is up to structural engineers to make the complaints to BORPELS. The number is on your green wallet card. If non structural engineers are allowed to advertise or use the title structural engineer, then i feel the title is belittled and an insult to all the hard work put in by structural engineers who have taken the large amount of time and effort to apply and pass the test. I would really like to hear from experienced structural engineers on this issue. Sometimes i wonder if i'm on the right track. Tom Harris , SE3803 Thousand Oaks, CA
