NCEES Seeks Structural Engineers’ Professional Expertise and Advice
 
March 14, 2016
 
NCEES, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying, is currently seeking licensed professionals practicing structural engineering to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the Structural Engineering exam. The results of this online survey will be used to update specifications for the exam, which is used by various U.S. states and territories for licensing purposes.
 
NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing structural engineering—including those working in industry, consulting, the public sector, and academia—to complete an online survey. The survey will help determine the knowledge and skills required of a licensed structural engineer with 4 to 6 years of experience to practice in a manner that safeguards the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in about 45 minutes.
 
“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice,” explained Director of Exam Services Tim Miller, P.E. “The value of this PAKS depends on the number of people who participate, so NCEES is eager to get a large response from professional engineers across all areas of structural engineering.”

Responses must be received by May 1, 2016.
