Fall Education Seminar planned

MSPE will be hosting a Fall Education Seminar that will provide 6 PDHs for Professional Engineers. The morning will focus on Drone Technology and the afternoon session will focus on Autonomous Vehicles. Each session will be presented by three experts on the topic and will also include a discussion period.

The Drone Technology session will include information on the many applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), including hyper-spectral remote sensing, work in the utility sector and infrastructure inspection. Additionally, this session will discuss current rules and regulations pertaining to the commercial use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and liabilities for, and penalties against companies that operate UAS improperly. We will also take a look at drone use from the aviation community perspective.

The second part of the day will be dedicated to Autonomous Vehicles (AV). This session will begin by discussing the technology behind AV and continuing with related infrastructure issues. From there, we will turn to current research and testing of autonomous vehicles and how Professional Engineers are part of this process.

New Logo, New Look

Over the last several years, NSPE leaders have been working overtime to create a new-look organization for professional engineers while still holding true to the principles on which NSPE was founded in 1934. To complement the organization’s new strategic direction and outlook, the board of directors recently approved a new logo.

The Michigan Society of Professional Engineers has chosen to follow NSPE's lead and update our look. The new logo, pictured here, will be used going forward. MSPE's leadership believes that we, too, are moving in a new direction and the new logo is a symbol of that change.
