Advice on PE for a Mechanical EI

Advice on PE for a Mechanical EI

Advice on PE for a Mechanical EI

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could share some advice about getting the mechanical PE. I graduated a year and a half ago with a degree in mechanical engineering and just recently passed the FE. I am currently working for an IMP company doing R&D for new products and some work here and there under Civil PEs with intentions on eventually sitting for my Mechanical PE. So I was wondering... What do mechanical PEs do? Is it really worth it to get the PE in mechanical for the position I am in? Does anyone know if doing work under Civil PE counts towards the requirement for the Mechanical PE or would I have to find a mechanical guy to work under?

Any info would be great! I really appreciate it.


RE: Advice on PE for a Mechanical EI

Most mechanicals I know do HVAC in commercial buildings. You can contact your state board and see if they will allow you to take the mech. PE exam. Another forum will likely be better since this is the NICET forum which is mainly for engineering technicians.
