Joel Whitmer Earns P.E. License
Drive and determination have paid off for Joel Whitmer, who has earned his Professional Engineering license. Studying for and passing the requisite exams requires self-motivation, and Joel finds a certain satisfaction in being able to rely on himself. “Engineering is about finding answers, which mostly involves your peers,” he reflects. “But at the end of the day it comes back to you and the decisions you make.”
For Joel, realizing this goal required developing an understanding of his own knowledge, what he does and doesn’t know, and continually adjusting that. A lifelong learner, Joel is pleased to have met his goal but knows it doesn’t stop there. PEs must continually demonstrate their competency, maintaining and improving their skills. He plans to continue to learn and find answers to the puzzles he and his peers face every day.
