Extended Academic Programs
In January 2014, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) announced a new exam format for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam that will significantly impact test-takers and exam review course providers. There will no longer be general content that all examinees complete during the morning portion of the exam. The exam is now only offered as a 5 hour, 20 minute exam in seven separate disciplines. In addition to the new content changes, the exam will now be offered throughout the year as a Computer-Based Test (CBT).
New textbooks and exam references have recently been published by NCEES and PPI, Inc. and we are currently evaluating those resources with plans to launch a new FE Exam Review course. We anticipate the first offering of a new FE Exam Review course to open in mid-October. If you would like to be notified when the new course opens for enrollment, please complete a “Course Inquiry.” You may also contact Program Director Janeene Humphrey with any questions at JHumphrey@uncc.edu.
We encourage you to review the NCEES new 2014 exam content specifications and resources thoroughly at http://ncees.org/exams/fe-exam/ and download a free copy of the new FE Reference Handbook http://ncees.org/exams/study-materials/download-fe-supplied-reference-handbook/.
