Texas Licensing


Welcome to the Texas professional engineering licensing page! This page will provide all of the detailed steps necessary to get licensed and stay licensed as a professional engineer in Texas. For detailed contact information for the Texas Board of Professional Engineers, see the contact information page. Texas differentiates a licensed civil engineer from a structural engineer by title only. To become a licensed structural engineer, the applicant must pass the NCEES 16 hour structural examination. That being said, a licensed civil professional engineer may legally practice within the branch of structural engineering without further licensing, provided his or her work experience permits him of her to do so.
