  • My main disagreement is not with Software Engineering not being Engineering, it's just that most PEOPLE that call themselves Software Engineers are not Engineers (not registered with accredited body, meeting all the relevant criteria).
    • From what I've seen, most engineers are not Engineers (i.e. registered with some accreditation body). I looked into this a couple of years when I was consulting full-time, only to find that I could not even become a Professional Software Engineer in Indiana, U.S.A., as Indiana did not even have a Professional Software Engineer registration process. For me, the ability to distinguish between a Professional Engineer and a regular engineer has been enough (and rarely a distinction with a difference -- many engineers could be Professional Engineers if they wanted to take the time).
