Already enrolled in a degree program at the UCF Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering? You’ll find important documents and information under the tabs below. 

Undergraduate

All civil, environmental and construction engineering majors must take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam prior to graduation. This exam is offered by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers, which regulates the practice of engineering in the State of Florida. The FBPE is responsible for reviewing applications, administering examinations, licensing qualified applicants and regulating the practice of engineering throughout the state. Passing the FE Exam is one of the requirements to obtain a professional engineering license. Please Note: This exam is overseen and administrated by the FBPE and not by UCF or the College of Engineering and Computer Science. 

FE Exam Registration

The exam is conducted eight months out of the year in four testing exam windows (January-February, April-May, July-August, and October-November) at Pearson Vue Testing Centers. Exams are not administered during March, June, September and December. Visit the FBPE website for complete exam information or the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying website for registration information. Please note: Once the exam is completed, you must provide a verifiable link with the exam results to Mary Rush prior to graduation to clear your degree audit. 

Department FE Exam Review Course

Each year, the CECE department hosts its semi-annual FE Exam Review in the fall and spring. The review sessions are taught by UCF faculty over the course of four Saturdays. Fall dates are released in July, and spring dates are released in November. Courses are offered on the UCF Main Campus. Please Note: UCF offers the review course only -- the exams are not offered at this university.

To register for the review session, please fill out the online registration form. The deadline for the Spring 2024 session is TBD. The cost is $60 for current UCF students, $120 for non-UCF students, and $250 for UCF alumni and non-UCF alumni. To pay for the session, please fill out the UCF Research Foundation Form as follows:

Students transferring into UCF's civil engineering, environmental engineering and construction engineering bachelor's degree programs generally do so with some or all of the following courses completed at a community college or state college:

  • An associate degree
  • Calculus I, II and III (MAC 2311, 2312, 2313)
  • Differential Equations (MAP 2302)
  • Physics with Calculus I and II (PHY 2048C and 2049C) with labs
  • College Chemistry I CHM 1045C with lab for the civil or construction engineering degrees and both CHM 1045C and CHM 1046C with labs for the environmental engineering degree

All courses that are prerequisites for other courses within the civil, environmental and construction engineering programs must have an earned grade of “C” (2.0) or better.

Students transferring from a community college or state college with a pre-engineering program
may also be able to transfer the following courses:

  • EGS 2310: Statics
  • EGS 2321: Dynamics
  • EGS 2025: Probability and Statistics for Engineers
  • EGS 1006: Introduction to Engineering
  • EGS 1007: Engineering Concepts and Methods

The courses you will be allowed to enroll in during your first term at UCF will be determined by the courses that you have completed and are transferring with. You may not be eligible for a full-time load of courses in your major during your first term. Schedules will be individually determined during your transfer orientation session. If you have not completed MAC 2311, MAC 2312, PHY 2048C and CHM 1045C, you will be admitted on a pending status, which may also impact your ability to obtain a full-time load during your first semester.
