FE Review

Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Review

The 2019 FE Review – Early Registration Open

Oregon State University offers an FE review course hosted by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) club. This course is specifically designed to assist engineering students currently studying for the FE Exam. We cover certain topics common on the FE Exam for different engineering majors. The following subjects are covered:

  • Mathematics
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Engineering Economics
  • Electrical Fundamentals
  • Statics
  • Dynamics
  • Strength of Materials
  • Materials Science
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Heat Transfer

The course is offered annually from January 16 to September 1. Registration for the course is open mid-December to late-August, with early registration beginning in mid-November. Registration includes enrollment to in-class lectures occurring in January and February, as well as access to digital recordings of these lectures and associated notes on Canvas through September 1 of the same year. A Cascades campus live-stream feed will be provided to interact with lectures in real time. While attending lectures is suggested, it is not a requirement to enroll as all material will be available to enrolled students online.

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam

The FE Exam is separate from the FE Review. To take the FE Exam, you must register through the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) website. You can choose to take the following tests: Chemical, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Environmental, Industrial, Mechanical, and Other Disciplines. The exam is computer-based and is offered year-round EXCEPT in March, June, September, and December. The exam is administered at approved Pearson VUE testing centers, the closest of which is in Salem.

NCEES administers the FE Exam, but each state’s licensing board determines eligibility for examination and licensure. The Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (OSBEELS) does not require a separate application prior to taking the FE Exam. Once passing the FE exam, an Engineering Intern Enrollment Application is completed. This process varies in other states, and a separate application may be required prior to taking the FE Exam. Applicants residing outside of Oregon who wish to apply for examination through a different state must determine the appropriate licensing board to apply through. Applicants may be required to submit official transcripts and additional documentation. For additional information on the testing and licensing process please refer to the NCEES and OSBEELS websites.
