Joe Pasaturo, P.E., President of NYSSPE, and the Society’s Board of Directors wants to thank all our members who have reached out to their NYS legislators in support of legislation to require a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering (or its equivalent) as a prerequisite to licensure as a professional engineer in New York State. The legislation will add New York to the significant majority of states requiring at least a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering (or its equivalent) to sit for the Engineering Exam.
The bill, S3541/A6809, has been approved by the Higher Education Committee in each house of the NYS Legislature and we anticipate that this measure will reach the floor in each house shortly for a vote. We urge every member to contact both their NYS Senator and Assemblyperson and request favorable consideration. If you do not know who to contact, please use the following link to identify your state legislators by simply providing your residential address.
A copy of the Society’s Memorandum in Support is set forth below. If you have any questions, please contact Mark Kriss, NYSSPE Legislative Counsel at (518) 449-2037 ext. 207.
