NCEES seeks licensed naval architecture and marine engineers’ professional expertise and advice

NCEES is currently seeking licensed naval architecture and marine engineers to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the PE Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering exam. The results of this online survey will be used to update the specifications for the exam, which is used throughout the United States for licensing purposes.

NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing naval architecture and marine 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 naval architecture and marine 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 naval architecture and marine engineering.”

The survey will be open until September 7, 2023.
