Young Engineers Advisory Council

PEPP Young Engineers Advisory Council

Committee Tasks
Each year, PEPP YEAC members select one or more projects to focus on throughout the year.  The projects are designed to help young engineers in developing their leadership skills and become better engineers or help seasoned engineers learn how to help mentor and motivate young engineers.  Through a series of monthly conference calls, the group works as a team to develop this project into something to benefit young engineers, PEPP and NSPE as a whole.
