FE Review Course Schedule and Syllabus for Fall

The FE review course is taught by current and retired CSM professors and other instructors who volunteer their time to bring this service to you.  As of now, all sessions will be held on Monday evenings from 7-9 PM. However, dates, times, and rooms are subject to change, so all participants should check this website for updates prior to each session.

This course is free for CSM seniors and full time graduate students; all others are welcome for a fee of $250, which is tax-deductible (receipts will be issued). Please write your check to Colorado School of Mines and bring it to the first review session.
