    I am an "official" Aeronautical Engineer after 6 years in the university, and I don't mind calling "engineer" to any person who applies sciences and his own knowledge, reasoning and judgement to solve real-life problems.

    In my factory, I'm the boss of persons who I gave the "title" of process engineers, products engineers and quality engineers, many of whom lack any university degree. So I'm far from being offended to call "engineer" to any person that does "engineering" despite of his formal education.

    Now, calling any technician an engineer is a different thing.

    More or less happens with the title "manager" that was once reserved for middle and upper decision positions in a company, and now it used for any person that "manages" any resource (like a screwdriver).
