Title: RE: State SE Requirements


Michigan has a SEA.  SEAMi is only "officially" about 2 years old.  I am not sure how many members we have but I will try to find it out for you.  If my some-what faultly memory serves me correctly, one has to be a licensed PE to be a voting member.  You can take a look at our Constitution and Bylaws on our web (it has been a couple of months since I created the pages so I don't recall them that well).  Our web site is at

Oh, BTW, your spreadsheet is correct in that currently Michigan does not have separate license or exam for structural.  One takes the plain, old vanilla PE exam only.  This may change sometime in the future.

Hope this helps.

The attached CSV file contains information on structural engineering
licensing requirements and structural engineers associations in the states,
which have these.  I want to fill in the missing information and verify what
the spreadsheet contains.

A. Number of years of structural engineering experience required, after
receiving BSCE, to sit for the structural licensee examination
B. Engineering registration required to sit for the structural examination
C. If the state has a structural engineers association?
D. Total number of members in the State SEA (registered or not)?
E. SEA requirement for voting in elections?

I will distribute the spreadsheet again after accumulating more information.
Thanks in advance for any help
