Demonstrating Quality Plan
To advance your career, as well as your discipline, producing a product that is reviewed by other
experts and which credits you, is an optimal thing to accomplish. This is because this is regarded as a
independent, unbiased assessment of your professional activities. For many disciplines, this can be a
publication with you as first author*.


There may be other ways to do this depending on your specific
discipline. For example, for engineers, a patent is a similar accomplishment. Many disciplines also have
certifications, etc. which donate expertise in a specific subject. For example, as outlined on the next page,
engineers can be certified as a Professional Engineer ( and the bonus is that you get an official seal; I have
my Dad’s). Very few engineers actually take this step.
Obviously obtaining any of these require time and effort. Planning, as we have discussed, is an
excellent way to help you achieve goals. Ideally in your career development plan you have identified points
in your career where you will be doing something that creates a product that can receive this outside,
independent review and verification.
Remember that when it comes time to be promoted or look for the next job, there will be lots of
people who have worked diligently and performed well. While the type of projects, etc. you have done are,
of course, important, this is another way to distinguish yourself.
*While there are different conventions about how to do an author list, the plain fact is that people remember papers
by the name of the first author. Who remembers the fourth author besides your parents?
What is a PE?
To a client, it means you’ve got the credentials to earn their trust. To an employer, it signals your ability to
take on a higher level of responsibility. Among your colleagues, it demands respect. To yourself, it’s a
symbol of pride and measure of your own hard-won achievement.
To become licensed, engineers must complete a four-year college degree, work under a Professional
Engineer for at least four years, pass two intensive competency exams and earn a license from their state’s
licensure board. Then, to retain their licenses, PEs must continually maintain and improve their skills
throughout their careers.
Yet the results are well worth the effort. By combining their specialized skills with their high standards for
ethics and quality assurance, PEs help make us healthier, keep us safer and allow all of us to live better lives
than ever before.
A century ago, anyone could work as an engineer without proof of competency. In order to protect the
public health, safety, and welfare, the first engineering licensure law was enacted in 1907 in Wyoming. Now
every state regulates the practice of engineering to ensure public safety by granting only Professional
Engineers (PEs) the authority to sign and seal engineering plans and offer their services to the public.
To use the PE seal, engineers must complete several steps to ensure their competency.
• Earn a four-year degree in engineering from an accredited engineering program
• Pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam

• Complete four years of progressive engineering experience under a PE
• Pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam
What makes a PE different from an engineer?
PEs must also continuously demonstrate their competency and maintain and improve their skills by
fulfilling continuing education requirements depending on the state in which they are licensed.
• Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings
to a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work for public and private clients.
• PEs shoulder the responsibility for not only their work, but also for the lives affected by that
work and must hold themselves to high ethical standards of practice.
• Licensure for a consulting engineer or a private practitioner is not something that is merely
desirable; it is a legal requirement for those who are in responsible charge of work, be they
principals or employees.
• Licensure for engineers in government has become increasingly significant. In many federal,
state, and municipal agencies, certain governmental engineering positions, particularly those
considered higher level and responsible positions, must be filled by licensed professional
• Many states require that individuals teaching engineering must also be licensed. Exemptions to
state laws are under attack, and in the future, those in education, as well as industry and
government, may need to be licensed to practice. Also, licensure helps educators prepare
students for their future in engineering.
