As a member society of the National Society of Professional Engineers, we echo the Professional Policies adopted by NSPE on:
- Research - National Science Foundation (PP No. 38)
- Elementary and Secondary Education (PP No. 65)
- Continuing Professional Competency (PP No. 122)
- Education - Engineering Education Requirements (PP No. 168)
To quote from PP No. 65 on Elementary and Secondary Education:
NSPE believes the future of the United States, as a world leader, is dependent upon our societyâ€™s heightened emphasis in the development of technological leadership. NSPE further believes this future must include, as its foundation, sound, effective educational programs at both the elementary and secondary school levels. A continued focus on these programs will require a commitment from NSPE members to work with state and local public educational groups to effect appropriate educational goals, objectives, leadership development, and funding for elementary and secondary science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education needed to prepare students for a future career in the engineering profession.
To further this commitment, MSPE is proud to continue our long tradition of supporting our development of technological leadership by providing funding and volunteers for the State and Chapter MATHCOUNTS competitions and by providing Scholarships for graduating high school seniors at both the State and Chapter levels. Please continue on to the MATHCOUNTS and Scholarship web pages for more information on both of these programs.
