Did anyone invite an engineer? If so, how are you supposed to abbreviate it?
Eng. John Doe and Engr. John Doe
but I don't know which one is correct? TIA!

Regardless, I agree that you wouldn't put it on an invitation, unless the person you have in mind is a little pretentious and really likes the title (have you ever heard of him using his engineer title before?)

to be considered an EIT (engineer in training) you have to have graduated with a 4-year degree from an accredited university & passed an 8-hour fundamentals of engineering exam
to be an PE (professional engineer) you have to have been an EIT for 4 years, worked under a PE, and taken another 8 hour exam.
these are the bare bones requirements, each state is a little bit different.
my guess is that he is a PE, but it might be embarrassing if you address him as that, and he is not. so i guess my "engineering" recommendation, is to leave the title out. i don't think it would offend him .
