Hutto, Texas: Donald Spradling, Engineer, APEC Engineering & Laboratory, LLC has successfully passed the professional engineering exam and has now met all the requirements to become a Licensed Profession Engineer in the state of Texas.
“We are so proud of Don and his many accomplishments, as a disabled veteran, Don had to learn to walk and move again and only after bravely serving our country was he able to graduate with both BS and MS engineering degrees from KU to become the outstanding engineer he is today,” says Dr. Matt Phelps, PE and CEO at APEC Engineering & Laboratory, LLC.
Attaining Professional Engineer (PE) licensing is an impressive accomplishment; demonstrating that an engineer is dedicated, skilled, and at truly the top of his profession. Only a PE may prepare, sign, seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings to public agencies for approval. To become licensed in Texas, civil engineers must earn a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from an EAC/ABET accredited program, have a minimum of four years of active practice in engineering work, and pass the Texas Ethics of Engineering, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Engineering (FE), and NCEES Practice of Engineering (PE) examinations.
Don completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering at Kansas University before coming to APEC in October 2016. Prior to that, he proudly served in the US Navy for 12 years.
Despite Don’s achievements and courageous service, his personal best is his family. Don is also an outstanding parent and husband. Don and his wife Shannon have six beautiful children.
