Whether a person is a degreed engineer is relatively easy to find out. Like Russ said, get a resume that states where they graduated from and check. The question of whether they are a good engineer or not is tough and may not be answerable with interview questioning.

How's this for an answer: NO

Ask a specific question and you'll get many informed and knowledgeable answers. There are many industry professionals on this site that make sure no one is giving bad info.

i dont think that just having a major degree in mechanical engineering means that you are one. and not only mechanical engineering, i m talking of all sorts of engineering, be it civil, electrical or electronics. its an engineering mind that makes an engineer.
and about spotting the difference, you just need to talk to them. anyone can tell here that Mr. Fredgarvin is a far more better engineer than most of us

Apparently, ank_gl is working on his social engineering. A field that the OP might study a bit more.

I think I should need to have such a degree in social engineering as well.

I have heard that this degree MSE - can be something rather expeceve to obtain.

Does anybody know a web based university or something where the Master of Social Engineering can be obtained for some slightly less amount of money ?
