NCEES is committed to facilitating the licensure process for its member boards, professional engineers and surveyors, and licensure candidates.
NCEES entered its second year of computer-based testing (CBT) for the FE and FS exams, which were introduced as CBT exams in January 2014.
At its 2015 annual meeting, NCEES voted to approve development of a professional surveying program of distinction to annually recognize up to 10 college surveying programs with $10,000 awards.
NCEES promotes licensure to engineering educators and students through many initiatives, including its Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education.
“I think what we have to do as a council is unite and develop solutions to issues that will benefit everyone in the future.”
David Widmer, P.L.S.
2014–15 NCEES President
“Licensure is an important process in the United States because it allows our state boards to determine a minimum level of competence for individuals who wish to practice.”
NCEES Chief Executive Officer
NCEES formed the Emerging Engineers and Surveyors Group to connect young engineers and surveyors with NCEES to provide feedback on the licensure process and discuss topics relevant to the future of the engineering and surveying professions.
NCEES continued to maintain strong relationships by participating in other societies’ conferences and workshops, building relationships with international organizations, and advancing licensure to ensure the protection of the public welfare.
