"P.Eng is the abbrevation for "Professional Engineer", the same as P.E.  A
"Chartered Engineer" is one who has been accepted into the respective
institution in the UK (or other nation using the same designations).  Eg
"MIStructE" is a "Member of the Institute of Structural Engineers", a UK
designation with global status.  "AMICE" = Associate Member of the Institute
of Civil Engineers", and so on.  In New Zealand, they now have "CPEng" =
"Chartered Professional Engineer": they tend to follow the old country :^).
