Calvin: In the outer circle of the California stamp is says "Registered Professional Engineer"; on the inside circle it says "Structural". In actual practice, a California engineer will have two licenses, one a civil and the other a structural and each will have it's own number. On the other hand, my Nevada license says "Professional Engineer" in the outer circle and the inner circle it says "Civil/Structural". In both cases, the state's collect the fees for each classification. I've got some other states, but I don't remember what they say. Hope that really confuses you. Neil Moore old S.E. >Just out of curiosity. Does a California license actually say "Licensed >Structural Engineer", "Licensed Civil Engineer", "Licensed Mechanical >Engineer"..etc? Here in Oregon, our piece of paper just says that you >are "...registered as Professional Engineer,....especially qualified in >Civil Engineering" or ".....especially qualified in Structural >Engineering"...etc. I believe that only those "qualified in Structural >Engineering" can use the title S.E.
