NCEES seeks licensed electrical and computer engineers’ professional expertise and advice

NCEES is currently seeking licensed electrical and computer engineers to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the PE Electrical and Computer Engineering exams. The results of this online survey will be used to update specifications for the exams, which are used throughout the United States for licensing purposes.

NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing electrical and computer engineering—including those working in industry, consulting, the public sector, and academia—to complete an online survey about the tasks and knowledge required of a licensed electrical and computer engineer with four to six years of experience to practice in a manner that safeguards the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in approximately 20–40 minutes.

“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice,” explained Chief Officer of Examinations Jason J. Gamble, 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 electrical and computer engineering.”
