Professional Engineers Day

Celebrate Licensure and the Profession with PEs Around the World on August 2, 2023 for the eighth annual Professional Engineers Day!

On August 8, 1907, the first professional engineering license was issued to Charles Bellamy in Wyoming. Since that time, licensure has expanded and professional engineers across the U.S. have made the commitment to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. NSPE is celebrating licensed professional engineers with the eighth annual Professional Engineers Day on Wednesday, August 2, 2023. Join us as we raise awareness about what it means to be a PE, recognize licensed PEs, and show appreciation for the work they do each and every day.

This year, there’s no better way to celebrate PE Day than by attending the 2023 Professional Engineers Conference.

Be a part of the virtual event on August 2, 2023!

  • Upload a photo or video of yourself, tell us why you decided to become a PE
  • Post photos or videos of your team of PEs
