I have been teaching CE501 - Professional Practice annually during the Spring semester since 2012. The objectives of this course are to provide students with learning exposure to non-technical issues and matters pertaining to performing as a practicing professional engineer as well as exposure to forming, leading and managing a privately-owned professional engineering firm. Although this is a Civil and Environmental Engineering Department course, much of the course content is applicable to practicing engineers in other disciplines (e.g., mechanical and electrical). My goal is to help course participants make the transition from technical professional to practicing professional.
