New Professional Engineers at Sayre

Congratulations to Tyson Hasz and Karin Lang on passing the professional engineer (PE) exam! Per the SD Board of Technical Professions, licensure as a professional engineer involves three main components: education, experience and examinations.

To be eligible to apply to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam, individuals must have a baccalaureate degree in engineering and four years of engineering experience under the direct supervision of licensed professional engineers. The PE Civil exam is an 8-hour exam with 80 questions to prove competency in an engineering discipline, which requires months of studying and preparation.

Congrats Karin Lang, P.E., and Tyson Hasz, P.E.!
