Why Join

TSPE is a State Society dedicated to the interests of PEs across disciplines and recognize your professional goals and dedication. More of your membership dollars are going to your state to support enhancing the value they provide through local member engagement, advocacy, and outreach activities.



We provide resources to members, potential engineers, and the public regarding the PE license:

  • What is a PE?

  • Why get licensed?

  • How do I do I get licensed?

  • How do I maintain my license?

TSPE's executive director serves as a full-time lobbyist dedicated to the engineering profession when the General Assembly is in session. Each year during session over 100 engineers from across Tennessee travel to the Capitol to participate in Engineers Day on the Hill to Meet with legislators and advocate for specific legislation affecting your profession and the health, safety, and welfare of the public. 

Protecting the PE License

Since the start of 2016, 26 states have introduced legislation and/or regulation that would erode and even destroy the PE license as we know it today, all in the name of job creation.


In Tennessee, there is a concerted effort underway to slash regulation of occupational licensure in numerous professions. We have successfully protected the PE license thus far, but continued vigilance is necessary. Many of our members hold licenses in multiple states, and the erosion of licensing in any state could spread like wild fire. Learn More...
