PE Exam Review for Industrial Engineers
4 Days | 2.8 CEUs

Overview:

Improve your odds of passing the most important test of your career with this popular review course. Licensure for professional engineers opens the door to a world of opportunity and career development. But first you must pass two exams: the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and the PE exam. The course instructors will cover all major elements of the PE exam, refreshing your knowledge of IE topics, terminology and formulas; working through practice problems; and identifying areas you need to focus on during your exam prep. The course reviews the key concepts from the industrial engineering body of knowledge as well as presenting sample exam questions. Since the exam changes from year to year there is no guarantee that all possible example questions will be covered. Individuals preparing for the exam may wish to purchase the Review for the PE Exam and/or the sample examination. They are available at http://www.iienet2.org/Bookstore.aspx. Participants in the review course will receive a specially developed set of review notes available only to registrants for the class. 

What You Will Learn:

  • Identify individual strengths and weaknesses in the IE body of knowledge
  • Prepare to sit for the NCEES* principles and practices exam
  • Comprehend the requirements for the NCEES IE principles exam 
  • Demonstrate professional industrial engineering methods
