My OPINION... for what it's worth.The general rule is that professional education is considered deductible as a trade or business expense when a taxpayer has ALREADY established himself in a trade or business. Educational expenditures incurred to meet the minimum requirements of being accredited or licensed as a professional in a trade or business are not usually deductible. So, if you are already a licensed engineer, take the deduction. If not, the IRS would probably consider this this deduction too aggressive... that is... if you are audited.
