To qualify as a Professional Engineer, you are required to meet three criteria: 1) pass the FE exam and become an Engineer in Training (EIT), 2) practice engineering responsibly for four years as certified by registered Professional Engineers and 3) then pass the Principles and Practice Exam in your particular field of study.
The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam will be administered on the SMU campus on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The Texas State Board of Professional Engineers (TSBPE) will accept applications and fees through February 23, 2012.
Applications and fees received at the board office after 5 p.m. on February 23, 2012, will not be accepted and will be returned to the applicant.
The FE exam is 8-hours long and covers the following topics: chemistry, physics, math, solid mechanics through mechanics of materials, elementary fluid mechanics, elementary electrical engineering, computer science, and engineering economics.
The Dean has arranged for faculty members to teach a refresher course. The course is free to Lyle Engineering students. All individuals taking the exam must register and pay the $125 examination fee online.
