LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reciprocal licensure for architects and engineers is becoming important as more firms become national in scope and the slow economy has forced many to search for work outside of their jurisdiction. To aid in the reciprocity process, the Nebraska Board of Engineers and Architects (NBEA) is now offering an online service for architects and professional engineers who seek reciprocal licensure in Nebraska. There are certain requirements an architect or professional engineer must meet in order to be eligible for the online process. A complete list of requirements is available at: http://www.ea.ne.gov/license_application.html.
