CLEMSON, S.C. — The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is seeking licensed civil engineers to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the PE Civil exam. The results of this study will be used to update specifications for the exam, which is used throughout the United States for licensing purposes.

NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing civil engineering — including those working in consulting, the public sector, and academia — to complete an online survey about the tasks and knowledge required of a licensed civil engineer with four to six years of experience to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in about an hour.

“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice,” explained Director of Exam Services Tim Miller, P.E. “The value of this PAKS depends on the number of people who participate, so NCEES is eager to get a large response from P.E.s across all areas of civil engineering.”
