Celebrate PE Day!

NSPE is celebrating licensed professional engineers with the fifth annual Professional Engineers Day on Wednesday, August 5. Join the Society in raising awareness about what it means to be a PE and showing appreciation for the work they do every day.

In lieu of in-district meetings with legislators, like those conducted last year, NSPE members will be able to participate in a series of panel discussions. The discussions will include members of Congress and/or their staff, who will share information on pending legislation that impacts the engineering profession. NSPE members will have opportunities to ask questions and to take action on the bills that are discussed by the panel.

PE Day falls within the week of the Virtual PECon (August 3-7). As a highlight of PE Day, NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt III, will discuss " The Importance and Responsibilities of Professional Engineers." His presentation will touch on the NTSB's recommendation for eliminating the PE license exemption for public utility work, and the requirement for a professional engineer's seal on public utility engineering drawings, stemming from the tragic pipeline explosions and fires in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts.

IBM's Global Chief Technology Officer Ben Amaba, is also featured as a keynote speaker and will cover the professional engineer's role in artificial intelligence and technology.

Corrosion minimization: The key is to protect metal surfaces

Many of the new combined cycle power plants that have sprouted up in the last two decades have open recirculating cooling systems, i.e., cooling towers, for turbine exhaust steam and auxiliary cooling. Corrosion protection is critical for these systems, as well as for new plants, including those using hydrogen-fueled combustion.
