Re: What do call your EITs?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow engineers,

       If his/her name is J.P. Jones why not just call him/her

J.P. Jones E.I.T., B.Sc.,
Structural Group,

Nobody can take issue with that.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson

Be careful.  In some states, the use of the title "engineer" is legally
restricted.  In those states, it does not mater what "adjective" is place
in front of the title "engineer"...you cannot do it unless you are
license.  Other states restrict certain combinations of "engineer" and
some "adjective".  For example, in Michigan, the only legally restricted
title is "professional engineer"...to my knowledge.  You can see what
state restrict what in responses to a survery by NCEES here:

What do you put on a business card? Do you call them engineers? They
are, since they've graduated with a degree in engineering...but everyone
in the building trades is so picky about that title, fearful that
someone may implicitly add "professional" in front of it. Do you call
them Engineers in Training (which sounds like they might be just out of
diapers)?  Do you call them Interns or Engineering Interns, like
architects do?
