The Queens Chapter of the New York State Society of Professional Engineers, Inc. (NYSSPE) is a non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of the engineering profession. We are the local chapter of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) serving the Queens borough of New York City. We hold monthly meetings from September through June which include informative talks and facility tours.
NSPE is the only professional society which represents Professional Engineers across all engineering disciplines and all employment areas: Construction, Education, Government, Industry and Private Practice. If you are a PE registered in New York State, an EIT, or an engineering student at one of the colleges in our area, you are invited to join our chapter, state and national organizations and help promote the profession! Please contact us for membership information.

THE PRACTICE OF ENGINEERING
The New York State Education Law, Title VIII, Article 145-- "Professional Engineering and Land Surveying" defines professional engineering, as well as the legal and illegal practice of engineering. The practice of engineering is defined as: "... performing professional service such as consultation, investigation, evaluation, planning, design or supervision of construction or operation in connection with any utilities, structures, buildings, machines, equipment, processes, works, or projects wherein the safeguarding of life, health and property is concerned, when such service or work requires the application of engineering principles and data." It is unlawful for a person to use the title "Professional Engineer" or practice engineering unless licensed and registered with the New York State Education Department.
