Professional Engineer Licensing
Mr. Elliot Shapiro of Shapiro Engineering will discuss issues related to Professional Engineer licensing at the September 25th meeting of IEEE Consultants? Network of Northern NJ.

While effectively a must in civil or mechanical engineering disciplines, PE licensing appears to be not very common among those active in electrical, electronic and software design. This could be driven both by tradition and by the ?industrial exemption? of our clients.

And yet, licensing as a professional Engineer can bring many benefits to the independent practitioner. Aside of the obvious ? the ability to call oneself an engineer and the business ?engineering? ? a license can open new doors and encourage new clients.
Particularly, governmental entities typically require licensing regardless of scope and type of work. Those pursuing expert witnessing can convey extra credibility. Even securing professional insurance may be less expensive.

The presentation will describe potential benefits of licensing and the process of obtaining a state license.

Elliot J. Shapiro, PE, is the principal of Shapiro Engineering of Valley Stream, NY. He utilizes a mechanical engineering background in operation of his environmental engineering business, specializing in waste handling and treatment and in industrial pollution issues.
