If you're stamping plans for, oh say...flight controls on a 787Max then yes there probably should be requirements for licensing.

For most purposes, no.

This same nomenclature issue (pushed by Texas IIRC 20 years ago) is why you don't see IT certifications using the word Engineer today like Certified NetWare Engineer or Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer anymore.
