Exam Result: Pass

• • • • •

The career path of any aspiring engineer goes a little something like this:

  1. Graduate High School
  2. Enroll in a college or university with an accredited engineering program
  3. Graduate from said college or university with a four-year engineering degree
  4. Take and pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (first 8-hour test)
  5. Work under the “tutelage” of three to five licensed professional engineers for a minimum of four years
  6. Take and pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam (second 8-hour test)
  7. Be Awesome

Well, I found out tonight that I have just completed Step #6, and have in turn earned my professional engineering license! WHOOOOOOMP!

In the words of the immortal Ron Burgundy: “I don’t know how to put this, but…I’m kind of a big deal.”

Hehe…so maaaybe not quite, but I sure am stoked right now! The exam was this past October, for which I had started studying in July and fretting about it ever since…it’s safe to say that a massive weight has officially been lifted off of my shoulders. Now, I’m sure that there are a bit more than seven six steps to the professional career advancement of an engineer, but I think things are going pretty well right now…wouldn’t ya say?

Seriously on cloud nine right now. Awww yeah!
