If you wish to become a Professional Engineer it will be important to choose an educational program that is ABET accredited. The ABET accreditation is currently the only accepted accreditation by the NCEES. The NCEES is the private body of combined state government regulators which provides engineering licensing criteria primarily used in civil service jobs. However, a second route is possible to become a PE with a Bachelors of Science in a related field. This requires a longer experience base and some additional course work. If you plan to go this route choose a good regionally accredited program. The DETC engineering degree is not intended for the student wishing to pursue a Professional Engineering (PE) license.
