Ruby+Associates, a structural engineering firm dedicated to serving the construction industry, announces that Evan Fredline, PE has passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Examination, and has obtained professional engineering licensure from the State of Michigan licensing board.
Fredline took the PE civil structural exam in October 2020 and achieved active license status with Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs in January 2021.
Fredline joined Ruby in 2017 after graduating from the University of Michigan, where he earned his Master of Science degree in Engineering in April 2017, and his Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in April 2016, both in Civil Engineering with a Structural Engineering Focus. Evan has worked on a diverse number of projects including a sports dome renovation, a university student union expansion and a high-rise project. Internally, he serves as a peer mentor for new staff members and assists with recruiting new engineers to Ruby.
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.
