Ruby+Associates, Inc. is proud to announce that Ronald Young, PE and Andrew Kus have passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Examination. Young has obtained professional engineering licensure from the State of Michigan licensing board, and Kus will submit his recently completed Masters degree transcripts to the licensing board to obtain licensure.
Young took the PE civil structural exam in April 2018, and received the positive results from the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) in May 2018. He also took the Fundamentals of Engineering exam in June 2018 and was notified of his results later that same month. Young now holds active license status with Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
Kus took the PE civil structural exam in April 2018 as well. He completed his Master degree coursework in July 2018 and will receive his diploma later this month.
Ron holds a BSE and MSE from the University of Michigan in Civil Engineering with a focus in structural design. Kus holds a BS in Architectural Engineering with Structural Concentration from the University of Detroit Mercy, and completed coursework for a Master of Structural Engineering degree from Wayne State University in July 2018.
To become licensed, which allows the individual to use the PE seal, engineers must complete a four-year college degree; work under a professional engineer for at least 3 years; pass two intensive competency exams (including the PE exam), and earn a license from their state’s licensing board. Then, to retain their licenses, PEs must continually maintain and improve their skills throughout their careers.
