NCEES seeks licensed metallurgical and materials engineers’ professional expertise and advice

NCEES is currently seeking metallurgical and materials engineers to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the PE Metallurgical and Materials exam. The results of this online survey will be used to update the content of the PE exam, which is used throughout the United States. If you are a licensed professional engineer, we would appreciate your input by completing an online survey.

NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing metallurgical and materials engineering—including those working in industry, consulting, the public sector, and academia—to complete the online survey in order to update exam content and specifications. The survey will help determine the knowledge and skills required of a licensed metallurgical and materials 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 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 P.E.s across all areas of metallurgical and materials engineering.”

The survey will be open until May 8, 2023.
