About the Nebraska Board of Engineers and Architects:
The Nebraska Board of Engineers and Architect Board was created in 1937 to protect life, health, and property and promote the public welfare of Nebraska citizens and visitors by enforcing the Nebraska Engineers and Architects Regulation Act. The Act ensures that licensed architects and professional engineers are competent to practice and explains when projects require the involvement of a licensee. The Board is comprised of four professional engineers, three architects, and one member of the public.
