It's funny how licensing bodies do not recognise computer engineers. I
am a member if the IEEE, but since I first wrote to the local body in
1974 they have never recognised computer engineering as a discipline.
After twenty years of chip-level troubleshooting on DEC machines I spent
twenty twenty-five years teaching college before retiring to my
soon-to-be-restored collection of old kit.
I ran into the then President of the provincial licensing association at
an alumni event a few years ago and he laughed, saying they are still
working on it!
Meanwhile, computers run everything...

Amateur Radio, the origin of the open-source concept!
