Many engineers use conferences and events to network and stay on the cutting edge of engineering and IT advancements. Conferences can also be a good resource to meet your continuing education requirements of your professional engineering license.
Not sure what conferences to attend in 2019? Well, here’s a list of conferences to consider.
Why Engineers Should Attend Conferences
Many state licensing boards require that PEs maintain and improve their skills through continuing education courses and other opportunities for professional development. You can find the PE continuing education requirements for PE’s at State-by-State Assessments.
Attending conferences is more than meeting your PE requirements though. It’s a chance to network with other professionals, learn new trends and technologies and practice your communication skills.
