D. Scott Phillips—a 1988 University of Louisiana at Monroe aviation alum and Monroe native—was appointed by Governor Bobby Jindal to the Louisiana Board of Registration for Professional Engineering and Land Surveyors.

According to statute, the Louisiana Professional Engineering and Land Surveying Board is comprised of eleven members, including nine professional engineers and two professional land surveyors, each from various areas of practice expertise.


According to Phillips, the board serves to protect the safety and welfare of Louisiana citizens by regulating the practices of engineering and land surveying and by issuing licenses and certificates to qualified applicants.

Phillips is a registered civil engineer and land surveyor in multiple states, and is the regional engineer for Tensar International Corporation.

He was appointed to serve as a professional engineer representing industry, and will serve a six-year term on the board.
