What is the FE Exam?

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam measures your competency to enter the profession. The exam is also the first of two steps to becoming a licensed professional engineer in the United States.

It’s a computer-based exam given any time
of the year at most Pearson VUE test centres.

It’s a 5 hour and 20 minute exam with 110 multiple choice questions covering most topics of your engineering degree. In the exam, you’re allowed to use and approved calculator and the FE Reference Handbook, which is available free (NCEES / MyNCEES).

The exam fees for the Fundamentals
of Engineering exam are $175.

Many state boards apply an additional application fee as part of the licensing process once you pass the exam. Most states don’t require those with a EAC-ABET BS degree to submit an application or pay fees before scheduling an exam. The exceptions are the boards of Guam, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, Soth Dakota, the Virgin Islands, and Colorado.
