When you see the initials PE after a person's name, it means that individual is a Professional Engineer. Often Civil Engineers will go through the qualification exams to achieve this license, which involves taking an eight hour initial exam. They must complete a minimum of 4 years of experience in the field to take another eight hour exam.
