NCEES is pleased to announce that the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exams have fully transitioned to computer-based testing and are now administered exclusively at approved Pearson VUE test centers. Computer-based testing provides many advantages for both examinees and NCEES. Examinees are now able to schedule their exam at a time and location that work best for them and receive their results within 7 to 10 days. NCEES gains enhanced security and better uniformity in testing conditions with the move to computer-based testing.
“We are excited that computer-based testing for the FE and FS is under way and that all of our preparation leading up to the conversion has been successful,” said Jerry Carter, NCEES Chief Executive Officer. “The transition to computer-based testing is a positive step forward for NCEES.” To learn more about the FE and FS exams, visit ncees.org/exams.
