Staying Technically Current

The IEEE is a leading developer of standards that underpin
  many of today’s technologies. Our standards are developed
  in a unique environment that builds consensus in an open
  process based on input from all interested parties. With
  nearly 1,300 standards either completed or under
  development, we are a central source of standardization in
  both traditional and emerging fields, particularly
  telecommunications, information technology and power

Professional Engineer (PE)

  IEEE is an Authorized Provider of CEUs through The
   International Association of Continuing Education and Training
   (IACE) and has adopted IACET guidelines and criteria for all
   its continuing professional development programs

   IEEE Offers P.E. Review CD-ROM to prepare for the exams
                     Benefits of Licensure
Regardless of the career path you choose to take, there are a number of
practical considerations concerning licensure of which you should be
Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit
engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or seal
engineering work for public and private clients.
Licensure for individuals who wish to pursue a career as a consulting
engineer or a private practitioner is not something that is merely
desirable; it is a legal requirement for those who are in responsible charge
of work, be they principals or employees.
Licensure for engineers in government has become increasingly
significant. Many federal, state, and municipal agencies require that
certain governmental engineering positions, particularly those considered
higher level and responsible positions, be filled only by licensed
professional engineers.
For those considering a career in education, many states have been
increasingly requiring that those individuals teaching engineering must be
licensed. Exemptions to state laws are under attack, and in the future,
those in education, as well as industry and government, may need to be
licensed to practice. Also, licensure helps educators prepare students for
their future in engineering
With the growing complexity and the increasing diversity of modern
construction processes and techniques, the engineer in construction must
readily be able to communicate and exchange ideas and views with other
licensed design engineers
                     Benefits of Licensure

For those pursuing careers in industry, licensure has recently taken on
increased meaning with heightened public attention concerning product
safety, environmental issues, and design defects. Employers have found it
advantageous to identify to the courts and the public those employees
who have met at least a minimum level of competence
Engineers in the military must have the credentials to stay with the service
in the face of downsizing or to make the transition to the private sector.
The scope of engineering practice is constantly changing, and engineering
activities that may be exempt today may eventually shift into a practice
area that one day requires a license (for example, research and
development may find practical application in the facilities
design/construction process, requiring the practitioner to be licensed).
State engineering boards are increasingly seeking and obtaining the
authority to impose civil penalties against unlicensed individuals who
unlawfully engage in the practice of engineering.
Engineers must adapt to a rapidly changing workplace-restructuring,
downsizing, outsourcing, privatization, and re-engineering. Engineers
should prepare to make the transition into a consulting relationship with
former employers and clients in the event of a corporate outsourcing and
respond if their corporation decides to bring design and engineering
services in-house. Only by becoming licensed can an engineer perform
the broad scope of engineering services within an area of competence as
defined under state law.
