Having appropriate professional licenses is an essential part of being a practicing civil engineer. Thus, Cal Poly Pomona offers review courses to help prepare for the various examinations. These review courses are intended for people who have already completed the needed college coursework and desire an organized review of this material.
These examinations are administered by the California Board for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors.
The Fundamentals of Engineering exam (formerly known as the Engineer in Training or EIT exam) is the first step toward becoming professionally licensed. Civil engineering students are ready to take the FE examination once they have completed the following courses:
We encourage all civil engineering students to take the FE exam before graduation. It is usually more difficult to pass the exam after graduation.
The Cal Poly Pomona review course is organized by Cal Poly faculty, and most of the instructors are Cal Poly faculty.
Cal Poly Pomona also offers a review course for the professional civil engineers (PE) examination. This course is typically offered twice each year, immediately before the October and April exams. The next PE review course is scheduled to start on February 17, 2015). The schedule is provided here.
Cal Poly Pomona offers a review course for those preparing to sit for the LS examination. For further information on the LS review course, please contact Dr. Howard Turner.
