I am facing the same situation as you but I am in this industry(as a contract staff, how abt you?) for almost 3 years. If I am not wrong, in order to get PE, it is mandatory to have a few years of experience...

If i were to join a consultancy, would I get to do more engineering work? I'm also thinking I should get the P.E certification now since I just graduated and my memory still fresh but dunno if it's worth the effort (I have very limited time outside of work). Between doing engineering and project management, which career path is more recommended?
