The seventh annual Professional Engineers Day is just around the corner! On August 3, 2022, the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers celebrates the licensure and profession of professional engineers around the world.
We commemorate the first professional engineering license, issued in August 1907 to Charles Bellamy in Wyoming, and the expansion of the industry across the United States in years since. This year, NJSPE wishes to acknowledge what it means to be a professional engineer, and celebrate the work PEs do to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the general public.
As suggested here on the NSPE website, being a licensed professional engineer establishes your credibility, skill, and a higher standard of ethics, quality, and responsibility. Each state regulates their practice of engineering to ensure the safety of the public.
Additionally, in order to become a PE, engineers must complete a four-year college degree in engineering, gain four years of experience under a licensed professional engineer, pass two competency examines, and gain their licensure state’s licensure board (State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors for New Jersey can be found here). And the work doesn’t stop there! PEs maintain their licenses throughout the years with continuing education to improve their skills in the field.
Only Professional Engineers have the authority to sign and seal engineering plans and offer their services to the public. The rigorous process to obtain a PE license is to ensure the public’s safety is trusted in the hands of qualified and ethically accountable professional engineers. For this reason, the dedication of PEs in their licensure and profession must be recognized.

More than a century ago, there were no certifications or licenses for engineers, and anyone could draw up plans and create projects. To protect the public’s health and safety, the professional engineering license was created. But why should you care about the PE license or consider becoming a professional engineer?
We are glad you asked! Check out the top five reasons you should care about the PE license:
That’s just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many benefits to being a licensed professional engineer that it is definitely worth the time and effort. At NJSPE, we are constantly advocating on behalf of New Jersey’s professional engineers to ensure their rights and professional license are protected.
