Beckwood Engineer Receives Professional Engineering License

Beckwood Press Company, a manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses and automation systems and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, has announced Mechanical Engineer Will Pisoni recently passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering: Machine Design and Materials Exam, earning the title of Professional Engineer (PE).

The National Council of Examiners administers the PE Exam for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), a non-profit organization composed of engineering and surveying licensing boards representing the U.S. and its territories. By developing a system for professional licensure, NCEES is able to enforce standards that restrict engineering practice to qualified individuals who have met specific qualifications in education, work experience and exams.

In 2012, Pisoni passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam, which is one of the many prerequisites needed to become a PE. He also spent over 150 hours gaining extensive knowledge on a variety of topics, including: engineering science and mechanics, material properties and strengths, manufacturing processes and mechanical components. To maintain his license, Pisoni must complete 30 hours of continuing education units (CEUs) and submit proof of attendance to the Missouri professional board every two years.

"This achievement furthers our commitment to engineering presses that are safe and reliable," said Beckwood Engineering Manager Adam Strein. "We are extremely proud of Will and his dedication to reaching this milestone."

Pisoni received his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Parks College at St. Louis University in 2012. He is also a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and authored a peer-edited technical paper published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
