Rule 20:38:32:03 Engineering.
:03. Engineering. An
applicant for licensure as a Professional Engineer shall pass the Fundamentals
of Engineering (FE) examination and the Principles and Practice of Engineering
(PE) examination, which are prepared and scored by NCEES.
An applicant who has satisfied the
engineering education requirement or who is a senior within two semesters of
graduating from an ABET accredited engineering program approved by the board
may apply for admission to the FE examination. The applicant must have a transcript
or senior status verification sent directly from the school to the board office
as evidence of applicant's status. An applicant who passes the FE examination
shall be enrolled as an engineer-in-training (EIT) or an engineering intern
(EI). Passage of the FE examination does not authorize any person to practice
as a professional engineer or to imply that such a professional title is held.
An applicant who has passed the FE
examination and has satisfied the engineering education and experience requirements
may apply for admission to the PE examination.
An applicant who fails the FE or PE
examination may retake the examination two times. If the applicant fails the
examination three times, the applicant may submit only one new application for
admission to the examination per calendar year thereafter. The board may review
an applicant who has failed the examination three times and may require
additional qualifying education or experience.
