The Purdue Society of Professional Engineers is affiliated with the National Society of Professional Engineers, the Indiana Society of Professional Engineers and the AA Potter chapter in Indiana. All of these organizations have outstanding reputations and are well known in the engineering field. The goal of this organization and its parent organizations is to promote professionalism, leadership and ethics within the engineering profession.
The Purdue Society of Professional Engineers is also an active organization in the school. In December and April, PSPE hosts the Order of the Engineer event for both graduating engineers and professionals. Those who participate get a ring and a certificate.
