ME vs. MET and FE EXAM

  1. Dec 15, 2014 #1
    Hello all,

    I'm looking for some guidance on my current situation and was hoping for some insight form those who might would know.

    I currently have a BSMET degree for Georgia Southern University. Since graduating I've had 2.5+ years of CAD experience using NX7.5 working for GE Gas Turbines and have recently transferred to and Oil and Gas company in Texas where I work as an applications engineer specific to centrifugal pump packages. My ultimate goal is to be a mechanical design engineer where I can combine CAD, FEA, mathematics, vendor relations, and project management to lead new product design.

    The MET program at Georgia Southern was accredited and I am therefore eligible to take the FE exam which I am set to do upon the completion of a refresher course in March.

    Within the company I am working for, the job position I am seeking typically requires a BSME degree but I meet every single other requirement for the position and am extremely confident in those abilities requested. By passing the FE exam, am I correct in thinking that this will validate my ability to perform the higher level mathematics found in the ME program? As the exam isn't specific to ME or MET, when passed should greatly add to my resume given I have a MET?

    Any input or comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, I also realized that I have posted this in the wrong section. If the moderator could move it to the careers section I believe that would be more fitting. Sorry again, and thanks.
