Course prepares the student for the general national FE Examination. FE review homework addresses FE exam preparation, and students complete a formal comprehensive review of engineering subjects associated with the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. The NY FE exam is valid in any state and does not expire.
Students should sign up to take the NY Fundamental of Engineering (FE) exam held throughout the year in consecutive months starting each January & February with one month between the next pair of active months, i.e., no exams given in March, but April & May, not June, etc. Students sign up directly with the NCEES site (see http://www.ncees.org). Each state has Pearson testing centers (similar to GRE exam or SAT’s); in NY, the closest are: 421-423 E. Main Street, Endicott, NY, and 6700 Kirkville Rd, E. Syracuse, NY. There are fees paid to NCEES and NY State associated with the registration (~$200).Once the nationally conducted FE exam is passed, it is valid forever and is valid in any state for Professional Engineering registration (requires an additional 4 years of experience under another registered engineer).
Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
Outcome 2: An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
