NYSSPE is pleased to announce that GOVERNOR HOCHUL on Friday, October 8th signed Senate bill 3541 into law which is now NY chapter 465 of the laws of 2021. The law requires a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering (or it’s substantial equivalent) to secure a license to practice Professional Engineering in New York State. President Joe Pasaturo, PE sincerely thanks all of the members of the Society who have worked on securing support for this legislation. New York joins the majority of other states which have a similar threshold for licensure. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2021/s3541
(The law contains a two-year window for those seeking to secure a license utilizing the 12 – year experience ladder to apply for a transitional exemption. It is not expected that many applicants will avail themselves of this grandfather provision.)

How will this affect a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering technology? This would be considered substantial equivalent correct?
