Hi All: While on the topic of PE license, I wish to put forth an issue which I am sure most immigrants would have had to deal with. Last year I sent in my application to sit for the CA PE examination and my application was rejected on the following basis: I was awarded only 2 years of experience for my 4 year Bachelor's Degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (which I am sure most of you would recognize as one of the premier institutes in the world) simply because it is not an ABET accredited institute. On the other hand I was given full credit for my M.S. degree from Rice University. Now if Rice University can recognize my undergrad degree and if BORPELS can recognize my MS degree from Rice shouldn't they give full credit for my Bachelors degree? It seems very unfair that inspite of having the same qualifications as one who has a Bachelors from a US University, I have to wait for 2 additional years to get my PE License and hence 2 additional years for my SE. I am bringing this up to see what my fellow colleagues feel about this issue and whether there is anything that can be done in this regard. Of course I am eligible to take the exam next April and hence it doesn't affect me much,.. but I would certainly like to see this rule change in future for the up & coming Engineers. Also is there any way I can bring this up with the SE board to allow me to take the SE exam 2 years earlier considering that I have had to wait 2 additional years to take the PE exam. -Swaminathan Krishnan
