When is an electrical engineer not an engineer? When Arizona's state regulators decide to play word games

Re: AKA Libertarians

When you do embedded work, you had better be an engineer and be able to prove it.

From a risk perspective... if you do embedded systems work on an RTOS based application where people could be harmed... if not an engineer, that company faces a potential major lawsuit if an accident happens and the developer was not an engineer.

From a technical perspective... very few who do not have an engineer degree can actually do the work properly.
