Fundamentals of Engineering Reviews

Fundamentals of Engineering Review is intended to provide students with an overview of topics covered on the discipline specific portion of the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. Passing the exam, administered eight times per year by the National Council for Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), is the first step toward Professional Engineering licensure. Since students have already taken courses that cover all of the subject areas, this course merely serves as a review of these topics in order to help the student prepare for the exam.
