We hope that this message finds you well!  We are mindful of those who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 Situation.

The 2020 Annual Continuing Education Conference has been cancelled.

This event, traditionally held in May, sponsored by the Utah Society of Professional Engineers (USPE) in partnership with DOPL and the University of Utah Alumni Association, has been on hold since March with the hope of improvement in the current health crisis.  Continuing restrictions for in-person gatherings at the University of Utah and elsewhere, however, make it very unlikely that a suitable date will be available throughout the remainder of the year.

We want to thank all who agreed to present at the conference for their willingness and preparation – we hope to hear from you in 2021!

For those requiring CE hours, we suggest the excellent resources provided by our parent organization, National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), which include up to 15 free CE hours with membership in the society.  We encourage you to learn more and to join NSPE at:



USPE Board

Welcome to the Utah Society of Professional Engineers

​The Utah Society of Professional Engineers is devoted to upholding and honoring the work that has been put forth by the professional engineering community. We also assist Professional Engineers in their continued learning and leadership opportunities.

Utah Society of Professional Engineers/National Society of Professional Engineers are the only organizations whose purpose is to defend the value and the necessity of the licensed professional engineer in our communities and industries.

By our combined effort to recognize the value of our professional engineering license, we can stand strong and voice our concerns to make the necessary changes to uphold not only the profession, but more importantly the health, safety, and welfare of the public we serve.


There is NO other society that works for the individual licensed engineer like NSPE does. This is our strength, our legacy and what every engineer needs to know.
—Rick Guerra P.E., F.NSPE

I joined as a student member - joined a couple committees at the state level in Minnesota and got to know a lot of people that way and realized this was a community of professionals I wanted to be a part of, and wanted to make part of my career.
