Professional Engineer Licensure

The requirements to become a Professional Engineer can differ from state to state.

As a minimum most states require an undergraduate degree from an accredited engineering program (such as ABET) before an individual can be classified as an “engineer intern”.

A MEng Degree alone without a qualifying undergraduate engineering degree is not sufficient to satisfy the educational requirements to become an “engineer intern”
