professional registration, which is administered by the Boards of Engineering
Examiners in various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico,
(3) successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the
physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and in engineering that
included courses specified in the basic requirements or (4) successful
completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelors degree in engineering
technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics, chemistry,
architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be
accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at
least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional
engineering supervision and guidance. NOTE: YOU MUST SUBMIT COPIES OF YOUR OFFICIAL
