In receiving his P.E. license, Mr. Thogersen has earned the engineering industry’s highest standard of competence, representing a symbol of achievement and an assurance of quality.

Only licensed engineers may prepare, sign, seal and submit engineering plans with drawings to a public authority for approval or seal engineering work for public and private clients. P.E. licensure also means that engineers bear the responsibility for their work as well as for the lives affected by that work while holding themselves to high ethical standards of practice.
