The mission of SECB is...

  • To promote SE licensure in all jurisdictions to provide a common national certification.
  • To determine the level of unique and additional education, examination, and experience necessary to perform the science and art of Structural Engineering.
  • To provide the public and stakeholders with an identification instrument that distinguishes an engineer with those unique and additional qualities necessary to perform structural engineering.
As the result of agreements between the Structural Engineering Certification Board (SECB), the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI), and the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA), SECB enacted a two-year minimum open enrollment method beginning January 1, 2013, for licensed professional engineers practicing structural engineering since at least July 1, 2005, to attain certification based upon experience and education.  During this period, the normal SECB exam requirements are waived for these engineers.  Click here to download an application.
SECB firmly believes that its certification of structural engineers should be an interim step towards structural licensure, not an alternative.
