PE Experience per discipline?

PE Experience per discipline?

PE Experience per discipline?

My degree is unfortunately not ABET accredited and as such I need 4 years of work experience before I am eligible to take my PE exam. I have worked for the past 3 years doing HVAC consulting but want to switch to environmental engineering (my major is Environmental Engineering but was within the mechanical department). My question is if I were to get a new job and begin working in environmental consulting would I be able to still use my three years of experience? Can any PE sign off on your experience or does it need to be the exact same discipline? Can it be the same category? For example, if he couldn't sign off for me to take the environmental exam could my mechanical: HVAC PE boss sign off on me taking the mechanical: thermal and fluid systems exam (this seems more transferrable to me)?

RE: PE Experience per discipline?

This isn't a NICET question but you should contact your state engineering board and explain your situation. They should be happy to help you.
