I think you are safe saying you are an engineer, just not professional... :-)

Looks like its true for a lot of states.  In California, reports

<p align="center"><b>3. Professional Engineers Defined</b></font> </p>

<p><b>Professional engineers</b> apply their education and skills to design
and analyze buildings, bridges, dams, roads, communication systems,
electrical power distribution systems, complex heating, ventilation and air
conditioning systems, and many other products and systems. </p>

<p>It is unlawful for anyone to practice or offer to practice civil,
electrical, or mechanical engineering or to represent himself or herself as
or use the title of &quot;Civil,&quot; &quot;Electrical,&quot; or
&quot;Mechanical&quot; engineer, unless currently registered by this Board.
It is also unlawful for anyone other than a professional engineer
registered by this Board to use the titles &quot;Professional
Engineer,&quot; &quot;Registered Engineer,&quot; or &quot;Consulting
Engineer.&quot; </p>
