Welcome to the West Virginia Society of Professional Engineers

The West Virginia Society of Professional Engineers is a state society of the National Society of Professional Engineers.

WVSPE was founded in 1934 to serve the interests of the individual engineer in West Virginia across all branches of engineering.

Composed of local chapters, the West Virginia Society of Professional Engineers is the only active, established organization devoting its entire effort to the professional, ethical, economic, social and political aspects of engineering in West Virginia.

Our mission is to promote the ethical, competent and licensed practice of engineering, and to enhance the professional, social and economic well-being of our members through networking opportunities, political action at the state and local levels, and student outreach.


There is NO other society that works for the individual licensed engineer like NSPE does. This is our strength, our legacy and what every engineer needs to know.

I joined as a student member - joined a couple committees at the state level in Minnesota and got to know a lot of people that way and realized this was a community of professionals I wanted to be a part of, and wanted to make part of my career.
