January PE Exam Grades

We've received grades for the January 2021 PE exam. Check grades at: https://pels.texas.gov/grades.

New Website

The pels.texas.gov site now includes merged content from the Surveyor and Engineer Websites.  We hope the new site is easy to navigate for you.  Due to the COVID-19 virus, staff is working from home but will respond quickly via email.  If you need assistance, please email info@pels.texas.gov

Fraudulent Email Reports

We've received reports of phishing emails targeting Texas PEs with warnings of license revocation. These emails are not from us. If you receive an email like this, please forward to us at info@pels.texas.gov so that we can investigate and update guidance as needed. Please note that official State of Texas websites will end in texas.gov, and emails from us will come from @pels.texas.gov or @engineers.texas.gov. Thanks for your attention.
