In order to become a Professional Engineer and be granted the opportunity to review and stamp engineering designs, you must first apply for and pass the Fundamental of Engineering Exam. When you pass this test, you will be one step closer to becoming a registered PE in the state that you reside.

The requirements for registering for the Fundamental of Engineering Exam vary from state to state, as well as when you are eligible to take it, but all require that you are a student or graduate of an accredited US Engineering program. Applications to sit for and take the Fundamental of Engineering Exam must be completed through your state’s Board of Engineers Department.

What Are the Benefits of Taking the Fundamental of Engineering Exam?

There are a number of great reasons why you should consider applying for and taking the Fundamental of Engineering Exam.

First and foremost, it is the first step in obtaining your Professional Engineering License. This simple reason alone is why many Engineering graduates alone go through the effort of taking the exam.

Secondly, as a Professional Engineering, you will have more opportunities for career advancement. Professional Engineers are highly desired for many types of Engineering jobs available (again, that pay more) that are only open to those who are registered as a Professional Engineer.

Thirdly, you will become a highly valuable commodity. Hopefully, you will not have to ever desperately seek work, but the truth is, Professional Engineers are few and far between and posses a skill set far unique to others. Sometimes, just having a PE behind your name will get you on the radar of the largest recruiting companies out there.

What Will the Fundamental of Engineering Exam Teach Me?

The actual Fundamental of Engineering Exam won’t teach you anything directly. It will be the knowledge that you gain while studying for the test that will make you a better Engineer overall. It will assure you that you are proficient in the broad topics of Engineering as well as an expert in your specific discipline of choice.

Being a Registered Professional Engineer is all about proving that you are not only knowledgeable in your chosen discipline, but are able to efficiently work cross functionally with other disciplines. This ensures that no matter what the object is that is being designed and engineered, that it is one of the utmost quality with public safety in mind.

Less obvious skills, though definitely not ones to be overlooked, that are learned while studying for and taking the exam is time management, organization, and composure. The Fundamental of Engineering Exam is given twice a year, so it’s a must that studies are well organized and time is managed efficiently. Even the most minimal time wasted in preparation can add up and lead to unnecessary internal pressure as the test date looms.

Moreover, when you sit for the exam, you are given a specific time limit to complete a specific number of problems that range from a wide variety of disciplines. It is a guarantee at some point, that the content and the time will get the best of your mind. It will fluster you, but the time limit is set, so you must compose yourself so that you can get through the exam in the most efficient and effective manner.

Where Do I take the Fundamental of Engineering Exam?

If you are about to graduate or are a graduate of an accredited Engineering program, you will need to apply to take the Fundamental of Engineering Exam through your states Board of Engineer’s.
