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.

Keynote Address
Two Centuries of Riding the Rails

Presented by
Patrick C. Morrison
Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania

Mr. Morrison's presentation is "Two Centuries of Riding the Rails," which is a nostalgic look at rail travel over nearly two hundred years. The program starts by talking a look at how people traveled from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh in 1800, the 1830s, and the 1870s and beyond and how different travel was in those three time periods. The last part of the program takes our guests through a brief history of rail travel in this part of the country from the "golden age" of rail travel at the dawn of the 20th century through today.
