In our everyday lives we take a lot of the things that professional engineers and surveyors do for granted. Professional engineers and surveyors are constantly working to help protect the safety and welfare of the public. In this podcast series, NCEES highlights the work of licensed professionals within the engineer and surveying fields. The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing professional licensure for engineers and surveyors. Since its founding in 1920, NCEES has focused on providing services to advance licensure and facilitate mobility.
