Steps to Becoming a Professional Engineer

There are several steps in becoming a professional engineer.

1. Graduate from an ABET accredited civil engineering program

3. Work under the supervision of a professional engineer for a period of four years. Credit for part of the four years can be earned by completing the co-op program or completing a graduate degree.
