So I am a little confused, in Canada or at least Ontario 15 years ago (maybe it is not the same now) but for a company to give an employee the title of engineer the individual had to have a engineering degree from an accredited school. But since being in the states it seems that the title means very little as it relates to your education.
I have had several people apply for our ME opening where in it states you must have a degree in ME, they either don’t have a degree or have a degree in ID but there last few job titles have them as ME’s.
I agree that some people can do the job of ME’s and just because you graduate with a degree does not mean you are the be all end all, and that many non degree people can be stronger mechanical engineers (as i am sure goes for many degrees).
Is this common throughout the states?
