    Why Professional Engineer Licensure Matters

    Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018 | 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
    Register for webinar

    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, confidence, skill, and quality. Your PE license tells the public that you have mastered the critical elements of your profession. It demonstrates your commitment to the highest standards of engineering practice. For consulting engineers and private practitioners having the PE license is essential. The PE after your name offers many advantages, for instance, you earn prestige and your earning potential rises. Across industries, be it government agencies, educational institutions or private companies, the trend is to hire and contract with licensed professional engineers. This trend will continue in the future.

    If you are unsure whether or not you should pursue engineering licensure, register for this webinar and find out:

    • Why should you earn the PE license?
    • At what point in your career should you pursue licensure?
    • What resources ASCE offers to help you prepare for this pivotal step in your career?

    Presenter: J.P. Mohsen, Ph.D., F.ASCE , is the Course Director for ASCE's PE Civil, S.E., and PE Environmental Exam Review courses. Dr. Mohsen has prepared and helped engineers pass the PE exam for over 20 years.

    The 2019 ASCE Innovation Contest has extended its focus to include showcasing, promoting and rewarding forward thinkers who do more than just come up with a great idea but would like to think about the challenges of commercialization and a plan for market adoption.  By attending this webinar, you will learn not just the importance of a business plan, but what to think about to build one. Here are questions we will address that frequently swirl in the minds of innovators:  

    Who is going to benefit from this innovation and how? What will they be able to do they could not do before and what is the value of that?  Why do most business fail and what do I have to think about to give myself the best chance? Who would be the early adopters and how do we sell to or partner with them?  What resources will I need to get my first customers or partners?  Do I need to incorporate and if so how? Do I need a patent and if so how?  Do I need capital and if so how much? 

    Presenter: Roger London is the Chief Judge of the Entrepreneurial track of the 2019 ASCE Innovation Contest. Mr. London has over 25 years of experience working with corporations, as well as being an entrepreneur, merchant banker, security incubator manager, defense and intelligence community technology scout, angel investor, and entrepreneur mentor.
