I went to a large engineering university (one of the "tech" schools) and it always bothered me when an ET would represent themselves as an engineer. I've even known a couple to put this on their resumes.
Thank you for at least being level-headed about it. I wholeheartedly agree that an EET is not an Engineer. (have had some kids who got lower standardized test scores than me, but are eng majors call me an idiot for going into ET, buts thats neither here nor there) But my caveat is that my school used to be part of a big tech school (shouldnt be hard to figure out) so I got alot of shit for choosing the EET degree over the EE degree from the big name school. But I took the same classes as an EE even though I got an EET degree. (Calc I,II,II, Thermo, e-mag, etc.) because I wanted to show myself I could handle that level of "theoretical" coursework. I also passed the FE and am employed as an "engineer," however, I have spelled out word for word on my resume "Bachelor's of Science In Electrical Engineering Technology"
So I'm cool with being second rate
Also, just for reference:http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/dcom/olia/oed/grb.pdf
I qualify under category A, B, and C. So, this:

is wholly irrelevant. If it said in engineering matters, I would agree
Out of curiosity what school did you go to?
And lastly Im getting an MSEE from USC, so I will be an Engineer on all fronts
