The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is generally the first step in the process to becoming a professional licensed engineer (P.E.). It is designed for recent graduates and university students who are close to finishing an undergraduate engineering degree from an EAC/ABET-accredited program. The FE exam is a computer-based exam administered year-round at NCEES-approved Pearson VUE test centers.
The University of Tulsa, College of Engineering & Natural Sciences offers a 8 Session exam review course for practicing engineers and TU students preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. It will cover 1) Mathematics, 2) Statics and Dynamics, 3) Probability, Statistics and Engr. Economics, 4) Heat, Mass & Energy Transfer, 5) Fluid Mechanics, 6) Electricity, Power, and Magnetism, 7) Chemistry and Materials Science, and 8) Strength of Materials and Engr. Ethics.
Benefits of Attending the FE EXAM PREP Course:
- You will receive demonstrations of solution methods and practices on typical problems from recent exams.
- Provided notes and handouts prepare you for the exam.
- Discuss problems with other engineers, faculty, and students preparing to take the exam.
- Availability to experts…your instructors (University of Tulsa Faculty).

- More information about engineering licensure (FE and PE) is available at https://ncees.org/licensure-engineering/
- In the United States, engineers are licensed at the state level by professional licensing boards. Engineering boards confer the P.E. license when licensure candidates meet a combination of requirements in education, experience, and exams. Before registering for an upcoming NCEES exam, review your unique approval and registration process by selecting your state, territory, or foreign entity from the map found here: https://ncees.org/engineering/
- Registration for the computer-based FE and PE exams is open year-round. The FE Exam is a computer-based exam that is administered year-round in testing windows at NCEES-approved Pearson VUE test centers.
