2 to 4 years
Eligible to take the PE Exam
After 2 years of experience under a licensed professional engineer, you will be eligible to take the Mechanical PE exam. Some states require 4 years of experience like Hawaii, but other states like California require only 2 years of experience. You can travel to a state that requires only 2 years and take the exam and then transfer the license after you reach the required amount of years in your state. Engineering Pro Guides provides valuable guidance and information on how to pass the PE exam.
