SCE faculty obtained important information on P.E. licensure and had an opportunity to discuss with the 2009-2010 NSPE President Samuel W. Grossman, P.E., F.NSPE, trends in engineering and computer science related to pipeline, curriculum, research and licensure.
Later in the afternoon, a smaller goup of SCE faculty presented overviews of their research and highlighted some fun SCE faculty outreach activities which included a radio show and our involvement in the upcoming American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) national conference which will be held in Kansas City in late October 2009.
For 46 consecutive years, the President of the National Society of Professional Engineering (NSPE) has visited Kansas City to connect with NSPE’s local and state chapters. Each NSPE President serves for one year. For the past six years, our School of Computing and Engineering has been priviledged to be a part of the President’s visit to Kansas City, hosting sessions with the President and our faculty and students.
