Students working in classroomWe are pleased to announce Dr. Clyde A. Lettsome has been selected along with other respected professional software engineers to serve on a committee to evaluate the results of last year’s National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) meeting.  The committee is a collection of some of the foremost software engineers brought together to develop the certification and licensing process for software engineers.

“This is the second year I have been selected to be a part of the software evaluation committee also known as the cut-score committee,” said Dr. Lettsome. “As an educator and engineer, being part of this prestigious group allows me to use my experience to help evaluate the minimum competency of tomorrow’s licensed professional software engineers.”

The NCEES will hold this year’s meeting to continue to develop the licensing process for software engineering professionals.
