PSM 650 W2020Demonstrating Quality PlanTo advance your career, as well as your discipline, producing a product that is reviewed by otherexperts and which credits you, is an optimal thing to accomplish. This is because this is regarded as aindependent, unbiasedassessment of your professional activities. For many disciplines, this can be apublication with you as first author*. There may be other ways to do this depending on your specificdiscipline. For example, for engineers, a patent is a similar accomplishment. Many disciplines also havecertifications, 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 havemy Dad’s). Very few engineers actually take this step.Obviously obtaining any of these require time and effort. Planning, as we have discussed, is anexcellent way to help you achieve goals. Ideally in your career development plan you have identified pointsin your career where youwill be doing something that creates a product that can receive this outside,independent review and verification.Remember thatwhen it comes time to be promoted or look for the next job, there will be lots ofpeople who have worked diligently and performedwell. 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 papersby the name of the first author. Who remembers the fourth author besides your parents?
2https://www.nspe.org/resources/licensure/whatpeWhat is a PE?To a client, it means you’ve got the credentials to earn their trust. To an employer, it signals your ability totake on a higher level of responsibility. Among your colleagues, it demands respect. To yourself, it’s asymbol of pride and measure of your own hard-won achievement.To become licensed, engineers must complete a four-year college degree, work under a ProfessionalEngineer for at least four years, pass two intensive competency exams and earn a license from their state’slicensure board. Then, to retain their licenses, PEs must continually maintain and improve their skillsthroughout their careers.Yet the results are well worth the effort. By combining their specialized skills with their high standardsforethics and quality assurance, PEs help make us healthier, keep us safer and allow all of us to live better livesthan ever before.A century ago, anyone could work as an engineer without proof of competency. In order to protect thepublic health, safety, and welfare, the first engineering licensure law was enacted in 1907 in Wyoming. Nowevery state regulates the practice of engineering to ensure public safety by granting only ProfessionalEngineers (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) examWhat 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 drawingsto a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work forpublic and private clients.• PEs shoulder the responsibility for not only their work, but also for the lives affected by thatwork andmust hold themselves to high ethical standards of practice.• Licensure for a consulting engineer or a private practitioner is notsomething that is merelydesirable; it is a legal requirement for those who are in responsible charge of work, be theyprincipals or employees. Licensure for engineers in government has become increasingly significant. In many federal,state, and municipal agencies, certain governmental engineering positions, particularly thoseconsidered higher level and responsible positions, must be filled by licensed professionalengineers.• Many states require that individuals teaching engineering must also be licensed. Exemptions tostate laws are under attack, and in the future, those in education, as well as industry andgovernment, may need to be licensed to practice. Also, licensure helps educators preparestudents for their future in engineering.3PSM 650 F2020Demonstrating Quality PlanName _________________________What is an example paper in your field?
