FE Exam Survey

Course Number: 
ARE 4050
Architectural Engineering Technology (ARE)

This course provides the student with applications for and review of engineering, math, and science concepts to prepare for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination (primarily the “other disciplines” subject area) administered by most states as a first step toward professional licensure as a Professional Engineer. It touches on both previously studied topics and new topics that are generally easier to understand and apply with limited explanation of background material. FE exam topics that are covered heavily in senior ARE courses (e.g., ethics and engineering economics) receive limited coverage. Strategies for studying for and taking the FE exam and similar examinations are covered, as is the application of engineering judgment in general.
