Professional Engineering Licensure Resources

ANS encourages professional licensure of nuclear engineers. The ANS Professional Engineering Examination Committee (PEEC) offers several resources to help examinees prepare for the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Examination in the nuclear discipline. These resources include the Nuclear PE Exam Preparation Module Program, the Nuclear PE Exam Study Guide, and the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Nuclear PE Sample Exam.

What motivated me to become a PE?

Duriem Calderin, PE, CHP
The professional examination in nuclear engineering sets the requirements and standards to understanding the roles of the engineering profession in society. Applying engineering principles to solve problems, but above all, to protect the workers, the public, and the environment. That’s a challenge! Obtaining the PE license is the goal for each engineer across the industry. Nuclear is no exception. Go forth and conquer; good luck!"

Elizabeth Mattson, PE
"I obtained my PE license as it was a simple way to professionally differentiate myself. It helped that my company emphasizes the importance of obtaining a PE license and provides ample resources to do so as well. Finally, having my license also encourages me to continuously develop myself through PDH requirements."

Rebecca Steinman, PhD, PE
"I initially took the PE exam to prove that I could pass what was considered a difficult exam. Today, I take pride in having "PE" after my name, especially because as a nuclear engineer, I do not have to be licensed for many aspects of my job, but I choose to remain licensed as a sign of my commitment to the protection of the health and safety of the public."

Joshua Vajda, DEng, PE, CHP
"Licensure is the mark of a professional. It's a standard recognized by employers and their clients, by governments and by the public as an assurance of dedication, skill, and quality. Employers are impressed with engineers who have their PE license. Licensure not only enhances your stature, it shows commitment to the profession and demonstrates heightened leadership and management skills."
