On Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, FBPE staff met with two classes of senior engineering students at the University of West Florida. FBPE Executive Director Zana Raybon discussed the steps necessary to become a Professional Engineer with more than 55 students in the Capstone Design classes taught by Dr. Thomas Gilbar, associate chair of UWF’s Hal Marcus College of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and associate professor Dr. Joseph Piacenza.

Dr. Gilbar’s class was split between UWF’s Fort Walton Beach campus and its main campus in Pensacola, where students participated from a distance-learning classroom. Dr. Piacenza’s class was entirely in Pensacola and participated via the closed-circuit video connection.
