FE EXAM  Information

The Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) regulates the practice of engineering in the State of Florida and is responsible for reviewing applications, administering examinations, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating the practice of engineering throughout the state. Passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam is one of the requirements to obtain a professional engineering license. (This exam is overseen and administrated by the FBPE and not by UCF or CECS.)

Basic information on how to register for the FE Exam

The exam is conducted eight (8) months out of the year in four (4) 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.

The FE exam must be taken by civil, environmental, and construction engineering majors prior to graduation.

For additional official information regarding the FE and PE Exams, including registration and frequently asked questions, please visit the FBPE website at www.fbpe.org.
