I fully expect this to come down to someone needing to be an "engineer."
I went through some hell using the name Connectivity Engineer in Virginia.
So much so that I tend not to take jobs there if I can help it.
Other states - not a problem.
I have a ton of certifications with the name engineer in them one way or
another - but sadly to some in government this means something different
than what you might expect.
Time will tell
