Forensic Engineer Examinations
For those seeking to become a professional engineer in the United States, they must first take and pass the difficult Principles and Practice of Engineering exam. The PE (as it’s commonly referred to) exam is created and scored by NCEES, or the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. Prospective forensic engineers can take the exam in one of many disciplines such as mechanical, civil, environmental, structural, or industrial to name a few. After completion of the PE exam, one must then take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. Anyone who holds a degree in engineering is qualified to take this exam. Some States do not require this exam as a part of their requirements for licensure, so be sure to check with your State department. The PE exam is an 8-hour, 80-100 multiple choice question exam that is administered in one day, with a lunch break separating the day into 4-hour blocks. Depending on your discipline there may be an essay that is required.
