Saturday course will help engineering graduates prepare for exam
Seven Saturdays in a Georgia Southern University classroom can help engineering graduates take the next step up the career ladder.
‘Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Review: A Refresher Course” will run every Saturday from Feb. 24 through April 7 in the School of Technology Building on the Georgia Southern campus in Statesboro.
The course is only for individuals who have already been exposed to the topics during their undergraduate degree training in engineering or engineering technology. Each class will meet from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch.
By passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is given annually in April and October, recent engineering graduates can be called engineers-in-training or engineering interns. It is the first step toward becoming a licensed professional engineer.
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying, which runs the FE exam, calls it ‘a measure of minimum competency to enter the profession.”
The course offered by Georgia Southern reviews key topics from 10 fields within the engineering sciences, such as mathematics, statics, and strength of materials. Using the recommended textbook, participants review practice problems and go step-by-step through the processes in each field.
The fee for the course is $499 per person. This fee does not include the textbook.
