Board of Professional Engineers

The Michigan Board of Professional Engineers was created under Article 20 of Public Act 299 of 1980, as amended, to license and regulate the practice of professional engineering in Michigan. Article 20 defines professional engineering as professional services, such as consultation, investigation, evaluation, planning, design or review of material and completed phases of work in construction, alteration or repair in connection with a public or private utility, structure, building, machine, equipment, process, work or project when the professional service requires the application of engineering principles or data. The Board works with the Department to oversee the practice of licensed professional engineers.
 
The Board consists of 9 members: 5 professional engineers, 1 architect who is a member of the Board of Architects, 1 Professional Surveyor who is a member of the Board of Professional Surveyors, and 2 public members. Each member serves 4 year terms.
