Note however that professional engineering (P.E.) licensure in some states requires that the applicant have earned an undergraduate engineering degree from an ABET-accreditated institution. Students in tending to pursue the P.E. are urged to check with the appropriate state board of engineering regarding specific licensure requirements in that state.
