The 2022 FE Review – Online Registration Available Now and Throughout the Course

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. This review is NOT just for Industrial Engineering majors, it is for all interested students. Historically, many Mechanical, Civil, and Chemical engineers have taken this review course. 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 12th to November 1, 2022 (access lasts for ~11 months). Registration for the course is open mid-December to late-August, with early registration beginning in mid-November, 2021. Registration includes enrollment to remote live lectures occurring in January and February, as well as access to digital recordings of these lectures and associated notes on Canvas through November 1 of the same year. While attending lectures is suggested, it is not a requirement to enroll as all material will be available to enrolled students online. The course is planned to be taught in a hybrid format, which we’ve done since before COVID.

Notes about the course:

  • These are lecture heavy review sessions, not group practice sessions
  •  You are encouraged to do more review than just this course
  • It is helpful if not required to have exposure to this material before
  •  This course is designed to help seniors/industry professionals who have taken the classes some years ago and are reviewing for the FE exam
  • We do not administrator the FE exam, that is the NCEES

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.
