Re: P.E. vs certified civil engineer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a friend from Croatia.  He graduated from college (over 35 years
ago) as a "Certificate Engineer", with the equivalent of a U.S. Master's
degree.  He had the educational credentials, but (as I understand) not
necessarily the work experience.

If you're planning to work in the U.S., you'll probably have to sit for the
P.E. exam.  Also, I'd recommend you get an certified English translation of
your transcripts.  My friend had problems with interpretation of his
"actual" educational credentials, and had to take a couple more college
classes before he could sit for the exam in Florida.

Can anyone from US civil engineering community please help?

Is Certified Civil Engineer the same as P.E.?
Another thing, would you write John Smith, Ph.D. CivEng or would you omit

Thank you very much,
