Professional Engineer (PE) is the term for registered or licensed engineers in some countries who are permitted to offer their professional services directly to the public.
The term Professional Engineer and the actual practice of professional engineering is legally defined and protected by a government body. In some jurisdictions only registered or licensed Professional Engineers are permitted to use the title, or to practice Professional Engineering.
The earmark that distinguishes a licensed/registered Professional Engineer is the authority to sign and seal or "stamp" engineering documents (reports, drawings, and calculations) for a study, estimate, design or analysis, thus taking legal responsibility for it.
In the United States, registration or licensure of Professional Engineers is performed by the individual states. Each registration or license is valid only in the state in which it is granted. Many Professional Engineers maintain licenses in several states for this reason, and comity between states can make it easy to obtain a license in one state based on licensure in another state without going through the full application process.
Licensure and ethics. Professional engineers have fulfilled the education and experience requirements and passed the rigorous exams that, under state licensure laws, permit them to offer engineering services directly to the public. PEs take legal responsibility for their engineering designs and are bound by a code of ethics to protect the public health and safety.
Engineer Interns or Engineers in Training are graduates from an engineering program approved by a state's licensure board who have also successfully completed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. Achieving EI or EIT status is the first step towards becoming a PE.
In addition to licensure, NSPE promotes ethical standards for engineers, across all disciplines, and has an established Code of Ethics for Engineers as well as resources such as articles, videos, case studies relating to ethical practice, and an ethics hotline for its members to call with questions.
