Maggie Vavrica, Senior Engineer, is PWGC’s newest Professional Engineer (PE) after passing the Civil Engineering PE Exam. The exam itself is an 8-hour open notebook exam that was broken down into a four-hour morning session and a four-hour afternoon session. In order for Maggie to be eligible to take the exam, she had to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, show proof that she has a four year degree from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited school, obtain at least four years of design engineering experience under a licensed PE, and submit a write-up showing all of her work and design experience.

As a NYS PE, Maggie is seen as a legitimate engineer in the eyes of the state of New York and will be able to sign and seal her own plans as well as plans prepared by younger staff. Becoming a PE is a tremendous step in Maggie’s career.

Maggie states, “I am very excited and proud of myself for passing the Civil Engineering PE exam. I look forward to growing further in my career at PWGC and seeing what the future holds for the company. It is a relief to know that three months of studying paid off and now I can enjoy my summer!”


“I am very proud and impressed with Maggie’s accomplishment of passing the PE exam. It is not an easy thing to do,” said President/CEO, Paul K. Boyce, PE, PG. “It also means a lot more than just passing an exam. It is a tribute to Maggie’s dedication to her career and her profession. It is great to see her continue to advance and take on more responsibility.”

All of us at PWGC could not be prouder of Maggie and her accomplishment. Becoming a PE is a significant step in her career and success. We cannot wait to see what Maggie’s future holds and the continued success she will achieve.

Congratulations to Maggie Vavrica for passing her New York State Professional Engineering Exam
