Most companies and schools recognize a valid diploma from a foreign school.If I were you I would make application with NJ to get my PE license which will require you to sit for the EIT(engineer in training) exam and the professional part of the exam.Once you get your PE most other states will recognize the NJ license and issue you a license for that state.
