Licensing and Registration

PE licensure is the engineering profession’s highest standard of competence, a symbol of achievement and assurance of quality. NSPE and MSPE provides members, whether already licensed or soon-to-be licensed, with the information and resources they need to earn and maintain the respected PE seal.  NSPE/MSPE does not license PEs. Licensing authority and requirements for PEs falls under the jurisdiction of the licensing board for the state in which an engineer practices.

The national organization that represents the state boards is the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).

U.S. licensure is granted on a state-by-state basis.
