Alliance of Young Engineers
What is the Alliance of Young Engineers?
The SFPE Alliance of Young Engineers is a community of SFPE members, affiliates, associates, and allied professionals, under 35 years of age, who share an interest in fire protection engineering, networking with their peers and who wish to advance their professional development.
- Establish a community of peers that fosters networking and interaction of SFPE’s younger membership.
- Provide guidance to members who are considered to be early in their career or considering careers in fire protection engineering.
- Develop continuing education opportunities that are relevant to and geared toward the younger generation of engineers’ learning style.
