									Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)
Exam: a required step in the process
for obtaining engineering licensure
(Professional Engineer (PE) License)
Engineering licensure - what is it?

Licensure…


 • Demonstrates that you've accomplished a recognized
• standard
• • Sets you apart from others in your profession
• • Provides career options and opportunities that might
    not have been available otherwise
• • Serves as a protection of public health, safety, and
    welfare
  • Is legally required to offer your services as a
    consultant
    How do I get licensed?

Step 1   Graduation
         The first step is graduating from an ABET-accredited
         engineering program.
Step 2   FE Exam
         The first exam in the licensure process is the
         Fundamentals of Engineering (FE). This exam is offered
         in April and October every year.
Step 3   Work Experience
         In general, four years under a Professional Engineer.

Step 4   PE Exam
         After the appropriate experience required, you can take
         the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE).
Why bother with licensure?

Your career could last 40 years or more.
Changes can take place.

Only licensed professionals are allowed to offer their
services to the public and sign and seal plans for the
public.

This path can lead you to higher wages, a wider range
of career opportunities, and a higher level of respect
and credibility among your engineering peers.
Why take the FE now?
75% pass rate now (higher for CU)
52% pass rate in two years

But, don’t take the FE if you aren’t going to take it
seriously.
Results reflect on everyone at CU. Pass rates are
known to employers and other schools.

Prepare now
Attend FE preparation classes in Spring 2010.
Take practice questions on web.
