Take the next step in your engineering career.
Become a Board Certified Professional Engineer.
Certification is the recognition of attaining advanced knowledge and skills in a specialty area of civil engineering. ASCE created the professional certification academies to provide a mechanism for professional post-licensure certification of the various specialties within civil engineering.
Each Academy offers the highest advanced post-licensure certification in areas of coastal, geotechnical, navigation, ocean, ports, and water resources engineering. All certifications adhere to ASCE’s policy to broaden and deepen the body of knowledge for practicing engineers and to elevate the standards in civil engineering.
AAWRE was the first professional certification program launched by ASCE in 2004. AAWRE offers the Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) certification for professional engineers practicing in the broad field of water resources engineering.
Launched in 2009, ACOPNE has recognizes sub-specialty fields of expertise consistent with the sub-disciplines contained in COPRI: coastal, ocean, port, and navigation engineering.
Launched in 2008, the AGP offers the Diplomate, Geotechnical Engineering (D.GE), the first voluntary, post-license credential to provide professional engineers an opportunity to gain further recognition in the field of geotechnical engineering.
