Saturday course provides prep for engineering exam
Seven Saturdays in a Georgia Southern University classroom can help give engineering graduates their next step up the career ladder.
‘Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Review: A Refresher Course” runs every Saturday from Sept. 1 through Oct. 13 in the College of Science and Technology Building on campus in Statesboro.
The course is only for individuals who have already been exposed to the topics in their undergraduate degree training in engineering or engineering technology.
Passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, given annually in April and October, entitles recent engineering graduates to be called engineers-in-training or engineering interns. It also 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 reviews key topics from 10 fields within the engineering sciences: mathematics, statics and dynamics, strength of materials, etc., covering one or two fields in each day-long class. Using the recommended textbook (not included in the course fee), participants review practice problems and go step-by-step through the processes in each field.
Registration is $599 per participant; registration closes Aug. 27. Class runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break (no food is provided).
