The American Society of Engineering Educators (ASEE) has issued a statement assessing the qualifications for the licensure of engineering technology graduates. The Monroe Professional Engineers Society Board of Directors has unanimously voted to endorse this assessment. The position statement by ASEE reads as follows:
The American Society of Engineering Educators, a society made up of educators in both Engineering and Engineering Technology programs, strongly supports the position that baccalaureate graduates from ETAC/ABET accredited Engineering Technology programs are fully capable of protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public and should, therefore, be eligible, without additional requirements, to become Licensed Professional Engineers.
