The Wyoming Board joins NSPE in celebrating licensed professional engineers with the fifth annual Professional Engineers Day on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. On Professional Engineers Day, NSPE raises awareness about what it means to be a PE, recognizes licensed PEs, and shows appreciation for the work PEs do each and every day.
Thank you for all the work you do and for keeping the life, health and property of the public paramount in your work as licensed professionals.
Cameron H.G. Wright, Ph.D., PE
Obtaining a Professional Engineer’s license was a career goal that I set for myself while still an undergraduate working on my BSEE. The holder of a P.E. license must meet the requirements of education, experience, and professional ethics, and I wanted to meet that challenge. What I didn’t expect was how much it drove home to me the responsibility that engineers have for public safety. When I teach engineering classes now, I regularly emphasize to students that decisions they make as engineers can mean life or death in ways they might not have anticipated. I’m a tireless advocate of licensure for both my students and for faculty members.
For those who say they don’t “need” a license for their work, I say that--need it or not--obtaining a P.E. license brings home to a person the responsibility to protect the safety and welfare of the public, and to always act in an ethical manner. When I first earned my P.E., I was an engineer on active duty in the military, and there was no legal “need” to be licensed. But I felt then, and still do now (30 years later!), that it is a very important credential for any engineer. Whether I’m teaching or consulting, having a P.E. license helps me to be a better engineer, and to serve my students and my clients ethically and responsibly.
Erin B. White, Ph.D., PE
My licensure as a professional engineer demonstrates my commitment to technical standards, ethics, and ongoing professional development within my community of practice-- environmental engineering with a specialization in hydrology and hydraulics.
It is an assurance to stakeholders and the public I serve that I possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience to consistently act in the interest of public health, safety, and the environment.
Tawfik A. Elshehabi, Ph.D., PE
As an educator, the P.E. licensure means a 3-dimensional obligation, or what I call the three S's.
(1) Society: We have a huge responsibility in ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of the community, and we strive to serve the public interest.
(2) Students: Practicing professionalism and ethics starts in college. While I teach technical knowledge and essential skills, I introduce the code of ethics and State regulations.
(3) Self: We lead by example. Thus, I continuously improve my expertise to help advancing our primary stakeholders towards their future in petroleum engineering, "Working for Wyoming and the World."
The cancellation of the April 2020 paper-and-pencil exam administration impacted approximately 16,000 examinees.
