For Immediate Release


Two employees of the Butler County Engineer's Office have earned their Professional Engineer's (P.E.) license, Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens announced today:

Amy Pursley, P.E., Design Engineer. Amy graduated from Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Engineering. Employed by the Engineer's Office since 1998, she is responsible for intersection and roadway design, commercial site plan reviews, and design of drainage improvements.

Karan Singh, P.E., Design Engineer. Kar earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Ohio State University. A BCEO employee of four years, he is primarily responsible for bridge, culvert, and roadway design.

To obtain a Professional Engineer's license in the State of Ohio, one must have graduated from an approved curriculum in engineering of at least four years in a recognized school or college, have at least four years of practical experience in the engineering field, and then pass a rigorous 16 hours of testing.

"We're proud to have Amy and Kar on staff," Wilkens said. "One of my objectives when I became County Engineer was to fully develop our personnel with a more efficient use of in-house talent. Their accomplishments will benefit the County by allowing us to maintain quality design work while saving costs on out-sourcing." This brings the total number of licensed Professional Engineers at the BCEO to five.

In order to hold the position of County Engineer in Ohio, the officeholder must have a dual registration -- Professional Engineer (P.E.) and Professional Surveyor (P.S.) -- as stated in the Ohio Revised Code. For more information, please see the P.E., P.S. page on this web site.
