Extended Academic Programs
Note: As of Spring 2009, the Electrical and Computer PE exam will no longer be a breadth and depth exam. Instead, the exam consists of three separate exams divided by subdiscipline. Each subdiscipline of the electrical and computer exam will be independent of the other, and there will be no common morning questions as in previous administrations of the electrical and computer examination.
UNC Charlotte's PE Exam Review for Electrical Engineering will focus on the POWER subdiscipline.
The purpose of the UNC Charlotte PE Review series is to help prepare engineers for the Engineering Principles and Practice Examination. Classroom lectures are designed to supplement and guide home study. Each session emphasizes step-by-step solutions to problems similar to those on the exam. Therefore, terms, formulas and concepts are explained relative to solving exam problems.
Benefits of this Review CourseThe review course provides guidance and direction not available during independent study. You’ll have the opportunity to network with others in the program who may wish to form study groups. The course also helps set a pace that focuses your studying efforts to insure that all areas will be reviewed before the exam.UNC Charlotte’s PE Electrical Exam Review (Power) will focus on the following topics:
Please note that most, but not all, exam topics will be reviewed during regularly-scheduled class time. Additional self-study will be necessary to fully prepare for the exam.About the Instructors
