Douglas County press release
The Douglas County Department
of Transportation is pleased to announce Mrs.
Brandi Peck has received her license as a Professional Engineer. She has
been employed with Douglas County DOT since 2007. Her work experience includes more than 16 years in design, analysis, and traffic operations,
“I am proud that after a year and a half of dedication, determination, drive, prayer and support that I have reached what was once a far off dream. Thank you to everyone who has been an active participant of this dream and helped to make it come to fruition,” she said.
The PE exam tests an applicant’s ability to practice competently in a particular engineering discipline. It is designed for engineers who have gained at least four years post-college work experience in their chosen engineering discipline. Mrs. Peck earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Civil Engineering and a Masters of Engineering Degree from Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland. She currently serves as Transportation Engineer with the DCDOT.
“Licensing, along with my education and experience, will increase the credibility of my work when developing solutions to complex transportation issues. This also gives Douglas County DOT additional credibility when working with the constituents of Douglas County in our efforts to protect the public welfare. ” she said.
There are many reasons both professional and personal for earning and maintaining a PE license. Only a licensed engineer, for example, may prepare, sign, seal and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or to seal engineering work for public and private clients.
Douglas County Director of Transportation Randy Hulsey added, “Mrs. Peck is a valued member of the management team in the Douglas County Department of Transportation. We applaud and share her excitement in this important achievement toward the continued development of her professional career with Douglas County.”
Mrs. Peck is married with two children and a resident of Douglas County.
