Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Registration


You are eligible to enter the FE exam when:
• You are a senior (in the last year) in an engineering program that is accredited by ABET
• You have graduated from engineering program that is accredited by ABET

If your program is not accredited by ABET, you will need to ask NCEES to perform the credentials evaluation service for your degree. For more details about the credentials evaluation, click here.

The NCEES credentials evaluation service may identify general education deficiencies that need to be fulfilled. We offer general education courses for engineers to help candidates fulfill any general education deficiencies that may be identified.
