I decided to swing by the Florida license website to check my application status and discovered that I'm now certified as an engineer in training (EIT). This is really exciting! Now I just need to fulfill the experience requirement and take the principles and practices of engineering exam to be certified as a professional engineer (PE). The hope is to end up working in a state that allows for submission of an awarded higher degree (such as the Ph.D. I will be pursuing later this year) in lieu of years of work experience so that I may begin the process for the PE license sooner rather than later.
