Re: Advertising as an Engineer by Architects

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've inquired similarly with the State Board for Engineers and was told an
engineer must be on staff or a principal.  Keep after them to verify from
them directly but I think they should be turned in to the board of
registration, you can get forms from them.  Architects have no business
saying they are engineers.
