Professional licensure for engineers and surveyors encompasses a variety of initiatives with a singular focus: protecting the public. This focus drives the activities of NCEES and its member boards each day.
The qualifications for professional licensure—education, examination, and experience—form the pillars of public protection. To become licensed, engineers and surveyors must meet established standards in these areas. As they move forward in their careers, professional engineers and surveyors are bound to practice their professions in a manner that upholds standards of competency and ethics.
The contributions of NCEES member boards, exam development volunteers, and headquarters staff are essential to fulfilling the aims of the organization. They share a commitment to upholding the public’s well-being, setting a clear vision for NCEES now and in the future.
