Agency Director

Since 1925, when Arkansas began licensing professional engineers and later in 1967 professional surveyors, the Arkansas State Board has endeavored to protect the health and wellbeing of the public by determining that the individuals it licenses are experienced and competent to provide engineering and or surveying services in the State.

Our Board welcomes you to the PELS website and we are confident that you will find a wide range of useful and easily accessible information relative to licensure of professional engineers, professional surveyors, and firms in Arkansas.

Licensees are encouraged to check out and take advantage of the online license renewal process. We believe this process to be convenient and time saving. We also encourage licensees, and applicants, to check their contact information and to update it as needed. It is important for you and the Board that this information be accurate and up to date.

If you have questions concerning anything on the website or about topics not on the website, please call the State Board Office (501-682-2824) and ask for assistance.

Very truly yours,
David Beasley, Ph.D., P.E.
