The National Council for Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is looking for participants for a survey of the practice of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering conducted by Pearson VUE. NCEES is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing professional licensure for engineers and surveyors.
The Professional Activities and Knowledge Study (PAKS) survey is the first and most important step in the development process for the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Principles and Practice PE exam. The PAKS occurs every 6 to 8 years to ensure that the exam is relevant to current practice in the profession. Licensed Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in all industries will be surveyed. Survey results are the basis of revision of the test specifications for the PE Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering exam. You will be asked to rate the importance of the knowledge areas required by a newly licensed professional naval architect/marine engineer, as well as the tasks that safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
If you are interested, please go to the NCEES Survey to participate.NCEES PE Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Survey 2023
