FE Exam and Review Course at Mines

About the Exam

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination is available to current CSM seniors in ABET-accredited engineering programs (including Engineering Physics) who are within 12 months of receiving their bachelor’s degree. Those who complete both the exam and their engineering degree program successfully are issued an Engineer Intern certification by the Colorado State Board of Architects, Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors.

Graduate students may also take the exam but must use the longer form application as described below. When they apply to the Colorado State Board, they are assigned to take the exam.

About the Review Course

A nine-session FE review course is offered on campus during the fall and spring semesters.  This course is free of charge for current CSM seniors and full-time graduate students. Others are welcome to attend the course for a tax-deductible fee of $250.

Each session meets on a Monday evening between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM, and features a topic which is covered on the exam.  The course is scheduled to finish on the Monday immediately prior to the Saturday exam day.  This course is not intended to replace individual study and preparation for the exam; rather, it is a review/reminder of the most important aspects of each exam topic.
