NCEES, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying develops, administers, and scores the examinations used for engineering and land surveying licensure in the United States
The Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam tests for a minimum level of competency in a particular engineering discipline. It is designed for engineers who have gained a minimum of four years’ post-college work experience in their chosen engineering discipline.
For exam-specific information, select your engineering discipline. See this page for more information.
In the United States, land surveyors are licensed at the state level by professional licensing boards. Surveying boards confer the P.S. or PLS license when licensure candidates meet a combination of requirements in education, experience, and exams. Before registering for an upcoming NCEES surveying exam, review your state's unique approval and registration process by selecting your state or territory from the map or drop-down list here.
