And if you ask the National Society of Professional Engineers, the answer is
someone who holds a Professional Engineer License.  Some states adopt the NSPE
guidelines and require you to have a PE on staff in order to call your firm an
engineering firm.   Notwithstanding, I considered myself an engineer long before
I got my P.E.

Audio engineer is a funny term, because it is also commonly used to describe
someone who works in a recording studio, recording (tracking), mixing, etc.
and who may not have any skill or experience in designing electronics.  I'd
say you are a software DSP engineer with experience in audio.

60 dB of audio AGC. Think back to before ICs. You need line-out audio to modulate a transmitter under difficult conditions. The talker is too busy to ride gain, but you want close to 100% modulation all the time. The spec: 5 millivolts from the 5-ohm throat mic gives full output. 5 microvolts gives line out no further down than 3 dB. A redundant pair of these amplifiers fits into a space 3" x 1" by 7". Total harmonic distortion less than 1% (reality was .4%). An engineer without a degree designed it. I built it. Carpenter and Glenn used it.

Ah... What is an engineer? Such a question! I'd hate to even *attempt* to come up with a correct definition. One of the best engineers I ever met did not have a Bachelor's degree. [-Rick-]

Texas Instruments won't let you put the word 'engineer' on your business card unless you are a registered P.E. with the state in which you work.

My understanding is that you are an engineer if an accredited university or college says you are. You can then put: John X BEng (discipline) or Bsc Eng(discipline) on your correspondence or bizz cards.

I am a software DSP engineer. I would like to consider a job as a DSP audio
engineer. What type of algorithms I need to know ? I did some work in echo
cancellation, and voice compression does this make me an audio engineer ?
