Benefits of Membership

Career Advancement

The ISPE Career Center helps PEs make their next career move and assists employers in finding licensed PEs and top engineering talent. Coupled with professional development, the NSPE network and “soft skills” honed through state and local involvement, your NSPE membership is the best investment you can make in your a career.  

Build Your Network

Through Interest Groups, blogs, communities, and live events, members can reach engineers across the country, in Indiana and your local area. Leadership and volunteer opportunities offer many options for positive participation within your community.

Communities

Online communities build a connection with your colleagues. Enter a place for knowledge exchange, content curation, collaboration, and professional networking. See what your peers are talking about and join the discussion.

Conferences

Each year, the Professional Engineers Conference brings together engineering colleagues, clients, and vendors to make important connections at vibrant locations around the country. The all new Indiana Professional Engineering Conference brings together industry leaders and vendors. Find the NSPE state society and local chapter nearest you and make key contacts while staying informed about issues within your own region or community.  

Chapters

Local Chapters provide tours, seminars, MATHCOUNTS, social events, and more. ISPE Chapters provide an instant network of like-minded professionals.

Advocacy

Through its government relations efforts, NSPE projects a powerful voice advocating the interests of the engineering profession on the National and State level. Resources available in the Legislative Action Center allow members to contact legislators and track legislation of interest to them as engineers. ISPE represents the interests of 13,000 registered Indiana PEs with the Indiana General Assembly, the Professional Licensing Agency and across the state.

Partnerships

Partnering organizations like Engineers Week, MATHCOUNTS, NICET, NABIE, and NAFE, along with other public outreach activities, demonstrate the positive impact engineering has on everyday lives.

Enhance Your Skills

PE licensure is the engineering profession's highest standard of competence - a symbol of achievement and assurance of quality. NSPE provides its members, whether already licensed or soon-to-be licensed, with the information and resources they need to earn and maintain the respected PE seal and enhance technical skills in our ever changing environment. All levels of your NSPE members are approved providers under the State of Indiana Continuing Education Requirements.

ISPE Online University

In partnership with Red Vector, engineers licensed in the State of Indiana can easily access courses to meet the mandatory Professional Ethics and Statutes and Standards requirement.  The low cost quality courses are available 24/7 online.

NSPE Fifteen Free Courses

Your NSPE membership includes fifteen free NSPE online seminars that you can view from your home or office. At the end of each seminar, a quiz will be available for those who need to meet continuing education requirements.

Continuing Education

The PE Institute has a catalog of live educational events, webinars, and conferences for the professional engineer. On-demand courses provide a time-effective option for engineers who want to sharpen their knowledge and skills from standards management to professional ethics. 

In Person and Close to Home

Several chapters offer regular education seminars and tours for those who prefer a more traditional education setting.  The all new Indiana Professional Engineering Conference held every June offers a variety of educational opportunities across engineering disciplines, as well as the business of engineering.  

Skills for Success

As engineers, we focus on math, science and the technical aspects of engineering.  Your NSPE membership provides opportunities to grow in other skills not necessarily addressed in school: communication, leadership, and project management.  Get involved in committees, volunteer work, and interest groups to gain the experience you need to take your career to the next level.

Stay Informed

Published six times per year, PE magazine - the flagship publication of the National Society of Professional Engineers - and the Illinois Professional Engineer Journal are both free to all members. Both publications cover news and commentary on professional issues: licensing, engineering ethics, employment, legislative and regulatory issues, education, and many others that have a direct impact on professional engineers. 

Members-only e-newsletters, like NSPE Update, PE Scope, and Daily Designs offer the latest news on shifting trends and new technologies.
