About this event

The purpose is to expose local college juniors and senior pursing engineering or STEM degrees, to the EIT certification or PE license.

This event will be a collaboration with NSBE’s Philadelphia Professional Chapter, NSBE ‘s local

Collegiate Chapters, NCEES & PECO. The purpose is to expose local college students;

particularly juniors and senior pursing engineering or closely related STEM degrees, to the

NCEES certifications: the Engineering in Training certification (EIT) and the Professional

Engineering license (PE). Currently, there’s a lack of minority licensed engineers across all

industries. As of 2022, its estimated that there are nearly 5k professional engineers and of that

figure, the lowest percentages are attributed to minorities: Asian (12.6%), Hispanic or Latino

(11.7%) Black or African American (4%). We would like to increase these percentages by

educating aspiring engineers on the benefits and responsibilities of a professional engineer in

addition to the requirement for obtaining a EIT certification and ultimately, a PE license.

All universities don’t prepare junior and senior year students for the technical exams necessary

to obtain their EIT certification upon graduation and because of this, many young professionals

enter the workforce at a deficit. Therefore, it’s extremely beneficial for students not only to have

the awareness of this certification but to have obtained it upon or shortly after graduation.
