In this article (and video above), I talk with Patrick F. McGowan, PE, Senior Vice President and Mobility Operations Director, at WSP USA, who gives us the real reasons why you should stick to it, and take the FE Exam on your path to getting a professional engineering license.
Here Are Some of the Questions I Ask Patrick:
- How has the PE license impacted your career from your perspective at this point in your professional journey?
- When you obtained your professional engineering license, did you initially have a clear determination to pursue it, or were there moments of uncertainty when you considered whether or not to commence the licensing process?
- Is it common for professional engineering licenses to be a requirement for advancing to specific positions within many organizations?
- Why is it important to obtain a professional engineering license, even if one is uncertain about the future direction of their career in fields like construction or chemical engineering?
