Engineers planning to take the state exam this October in preparation for obtaining their professional license can enroll in a review course offered by the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering.

The Cullen College of Engineering offers review courses to prepare engineers for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE/P&P) examinations. Registration deadline for each course is Wednesday, Aug.13.

The FE review course will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from Aug. 28 through Oct. 16. The PE/P&P review course for the mechanical engineering exam will be held Monday and Wednesday evenings from Aug. 25 through Oct. 15. Each of the 15 two-hour sessions is held from 7:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.

A registration form, fee schedule and additional information are available on the Internet at http://www.egr.uh.edu/ContEd/, or by contacting Stella Vasquez, UH Cullen College of Engineering, at 713-743-4714 or svasquez@uh.edu. Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Each non-credit review course will present material typical of the particular test and will be taught by UH engineering faculty and industry experts. Classes will be conducted at the UH main campus.

The FE exam is the first step an engineering student or graduate must take to become a professional engineer. The PE/P&P exam is a test offered in a specific discipline of engineering and is taken after a prescribed number of years of engineering practice. Licensing as a professional engineer protects the public by ensuring that engineers have met certain standards of competency in education.
