in thread What do you call yourself?

I call myself a software engineer. If I were working with lumps of metal instead of bits and bytes, I would have the opportunity to get some certification as an engineer, but that opportunity doesn't exist right now for software engineers. I like to think that I hold myself to the standards expected of a chartered engineer though, so see nothing wrong with calling myself one despite lacking the bit of paper.

    Do whatever you want. Just realize that when you call yourself a "Software Engineer" you sound like a damn fool to anyone that knows what an "Engineer" really is!

      ... and to some of us who know what software is.

    All of Canada’s provincial engineering associations will license software engineers. McMaster University has a CCPE accredited Software Engineering program.
