Extended Academic Programs
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.
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 InstructorsYour instructors have been selected for their areas of expertise as well as their teaching abilities. They are a combination of faculty members from the William States Lee College of Engineering and professional engineers from the industry. These instructors are enthusiastic about their subjects and are dedicated to helping you pass the PE Exam.
[The PE Exam Review] provided a very good guide to study from with relevant problems to work. Hearing it explained was very helpful instead of trying to remember everything from college six years ago.
