Nathan Rosencranz, PE, SE is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Massachusetts and a licensed structural engineer in the state of Illinois. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from Columbia University.
He has 9 years of experience in structural engineering working on projects ranging from the Manhattan Bridge, to Madison Square Garden, to single span girder bridges, to temporary structure and gantry design. He currently works as a structural engineer with Gill Engineering Associates. He is a member of ASCE, SEI, BSCES, and he sits on the SEI Boston Executive Committee.
Ian Riley, PE, SE is a young professional engineer in the state of Maine and is employed as a structural engineer at a multi-discipline engineer consulting firm. Despite the relatively short eight years that Ian has spent in the field, he has an extremely diverse background in structural design.
His experience includes: pulp and paper industrial engineering, structural collapse investigations, residential medium-rise building design, wood structural design, below grade precast concrete utility structures, steel building design, masonry wall design, long-span precast box culverts, industrial crane and monorail design, aluminum structures, storage mezzanine design, and much more.
Ian has always been active online helping other SE exam takers and other engineers through internet forums and as a guest writer for engineering websites. As a strong proponent of the 16-hour structural engineering exam and structural engineering licensure he's looking forward to working with PPI to allow others to successfully complete the structural engineering exam.

MATERIAL IS NICELY OUTLINED
"Material is nicely outlined and instructors are very knowledgeable. Seems as if they recently have taken the SE exam too, so that helps with the presentation."--Gregory A., PPI SE student
I'VE BEEN WAITING A LONG TIME FOR THIS COURSE
"I have been waiting a LONG time for PPI to put this course together! Overall, the course was GREAT! The content in the course benefited me on the exam and for self-improvement. The instructors express a passion for engineering and learning."--Terry T., PPI SE student
THANK YOU FOR GOING OVER AND BEYOND!
"I just wanted to say thank you for going over and beyond to help us out in the class. You teaching the material and your explanations actually made the exam EASY! Without saying too much about the exam, let’s just say your seismic concrete design handouts were very beneficial. But not only did taking your class help with the exam, it made me a better structural engineer. So regardless if I pass or not, thank you."--Joel G., PPI SE student
THIS COURSE PACKAGE CAME WITH GREAT STUDY MATERIAL!
"This course package came with great study materials. I did not have to buy tons of other text books. The review course really made a difference in the areas where I had no work experience like Bridges, Pre-stress, Timber and Masonry. This review course helped me fill that gap."--Ishan G., PPI SE student
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND
"I would highly recommend this SE review course. The instructors know their stuff, the homework is thorough, and participating in the classes is very helpful. This review course has made me a better structural engineer."--Michael H., PPI SE student
