The Engineer in Training exam is an 8 hour exam taken during a 1 day period at specified testing facilities throughout your State. The test is composed of 180 multiple choice questions broken in to two sessions, a morning and an afternoon; each 4 hours long. During the morning session, the examinee answers 120 multiple choice questions covering a broad range of engineering topics, ranging from general Mathematics and Calculus to Engineering Statics and Dynamics. During the morning session, all examinees are tested on the same general engineering topics despite their engineering background; this session is considered the the breadth portion of the Engineer in Training exam and establishes whether or not the individual has sufficient knowledge of all engineering disciplines as a whole.
In the afternoon session, another 60 multiple choice questions are answered covering a specific discipline chosen by the examinee prior to the exam; typically one in line with their undergraduate major. These questions are more focused and in depth than the previous session and hones in on the engineer’s specialty discipline. This session is considered the depth portion of the exam and establishes whether or not the individual has sufficient depth in knowledge of their chosen discipline.
