    Its hard to compare one country to another in terms of university education, but generally speaking all technical courses worldwide share some general scope.

    There is no degree in "Professional Engineering". If you have a bachelor in physics there is a possibility to continue with a master degree in Engineering.
    A Professional Engineer is a title awarded by the local engineers body in the respective country, it has a certain number of requirements and typically includes exam(s).
