Welcome to PSPE
Philadelphia Chapter
Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers

Philadelphia Chapter is dedicated to serving all licensed professional engineers and our promotion of the publics health, safety and welfare.

We provide courses at our meetings and elsewhere to assist member and non-members to keep current in a variety of fields and meet requirements for the mandated 24 PDH credits required by the State. We work to have our courses also accepted by other states including New York.

We assist professional engineers to network with others of their specialty and across specialties. We discuss and debate topics of interest to engineers forwarding our unified or diverse findings to the State organization to share with our Legislators.

We are the leaders of several programs designed to encourage and prepare our youngest citizens to consider a career in engineering. We are a resource to assist young Engineers in Training to apply for, study for, and become licensed Professional Engineers.

We are PSPE Philadelphia.
Come join us to further your profession
and further your career.
