On Professional Engineers Day the Wyoming Board expressed appreciation to all licensed Professional Engineers in Wyoming and around the world. Thank you for all the work you do each and every day! For keeping the life, health and property of the public paramount in your work as licensed professionals.
Steven Barrett, Ph.D., P.E.
“The P.E. designation is a constant reminder to me of the tremendous and awesome responsibility I personally have in insuring the safety of the public. I design control algorithms for industrial door controllers. Often my test plans are longer than the control algorithm code. The P.E. is a reminder that the control algorithms must be flawless and thoroughly tested before released for public use.
Public safety and welfare is the foundation for engineering licensure. It is not merely a credential at the end of your name but a lifetime commitment to always put public well-being ahead of all else.”
Dave Engels, PE
“Essentially all occupations have a form of licensure that members of our society use to be assured that individuals from which they require a service possess a certain level of education, experience and skill. As a professional engineer, I am very proud to be able to demonstrate to the public that I possess those characteristics in the field of engineering.
Professional engineers are responsible for providing society with the tools and infrastructure necessary to exist in today’s world. By applying science and mathematics to real-world problems, professional engineers develop solutions that improve the quality of life for all individuals living on this planet.”
Patrick A. Davis, PE, LEED AP
“As a Professional Engineer I serve the public. My responsibilities lie in performing my duties ethically, and in the best interest of those who place their trust in my services.
Professional Engineer’s are entrusted with great responsibility. In our every day application of engineering principles we must ensure that the buildings, machines, and systems we design serve the public’s needs, while minimizing the risk of failure.”
