A Professional Engineer
The National Society of Professional Engineers
offers this definition of a P.E.:
who have passed the medical boards or lawyers who have passed
the bar exam, professional engineers (PEs) have fulfilled the
education and experience requirements and passed the rigorous
exams that, under state licensure laws, permit them to offer
engineering services directly to the public. PEs take legal responsibility
for their engineering designs and are bound by a code of ethics
to protect the public health and safety.
laws vary from state to state, but, in general, to become a PE
an individual must be a graduate of an engineering program accredited
by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, pass
the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, gain four years of experience
working under a PE, and pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering
"A state engineering
licensure board regulates the licensed practice of engineering
within a state."

The Butler County Engineer's
Office has added David B. Quimby to its roster

young engineer who will compliment our staff nicely," said
Wilkens. "He brings a strong work ethic and will step up
to any challenge."
