FE and PE Benefits for a EE

So I’m a rising EE senior and the thought of the FE just crossed my mind. I am interning at a major defense firm and my intention is to accept a conversion to full time offer if I get one at summers end. I’m doing something called systems engineering and that’s the field I want to be in for the foreseeable future. I talked to multiple people but wanted to see opinions here. How useful is the FE and later on the PE for a career in defense? I would personally rather invest the time in entering a MS in Systems Engr a few years down the road and eventually an MBA. Design work in EE doesn’t particularly interest me hence the desire to remain in systems. I also do not want to work in an industry that deals in public works where the PE is essentially mandatory. Thanks! Maybe @boneh3ad @eyemgh and @xraymancs have some thoughts on this.9 replies
