Celebrating #LicensedPEDay

On Wednesday, Aug. 7, we’re partnering with the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) to celebrate the engineers who keep the world running.

Freese and Nichols continues to actively support NSPE. Oklahoma Division Manager Tricia Hatley was recently installed as the organization’s new President-Elect. She’ll serve three more years on the NSPE board: president-elect in 2019-20, then president in 2020-21 and immediate past president in 2021-22.

At Freese and Nichols, our commitment to our engineers and the profession runs deep.We support them at every stage of their career:

  • Pay licensing fees
  • Offer a day off to take the exam
  • Pay dues for one professional organization or half of two organizations
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Mentoring program
  • Internal training

Our engineers below share why they love being a PE.
“I love being a Professional Engineer because I get to work with great people who are making our communities and our lives better.”

“Licensure as a Professional Engineer means that my expertise plays a part in safeguarding the lives and safety of the public. It is an extremely humbling and fulfilling experience to be in such a position of public trust.”

– Jason Currie, PE

“I love being a Professional Engineer because no two days are the same, there is always something new and exciting to do! (And the stamp. The stamp is pretty cool.)”

“I just enjoy problem solving, which is really what engineering is all about. Engineering is problem solving using three tools: math, science and imagination.”
