The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE/EIT) Exam
The FE/EIT Exam is now offered year-round as a
computer-based test at Pearson VUE testing centers.
More information on the DORA Application and the
NCEES Registration listed on following pages.
PREREQUISITES
There are no, true, prerequisites for this particular
course offering, however, the following is what we
suggest to further the effectiveness of your learning and
comprehension of topics covered:
• Acquire the recommended textbooks and/or
study materials before starting this course (listing
provided in later sections).
• Purchase the most up-to-date edition/version of
http://www.abdn.ac.uk/engineering/contentimages/sediment_recirc_flume.jpg
the textbooks/study materials (listing provided in
later sections has newest edition/version).
• Read and work problems in the chapters pertaining to upcoming topics, on your own, before
coverage in actual class time.
WHAT THIS COURSE IS ALL ABOUT
Do you want to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE/EIT) Licensure Exam? It seems like a simple
question, and other reference materials will help you. However, learning in an interactive classroom,
where we encourage students to ask questions, is far more effective and successful than studying on your
own. With example problems and solutions presented by subject matter experts in each discipline, this
course prepares students for the 6-hour, closed book, 110 multiple-choice questions in the FE/EIT
computer-based exam.
WHERE THE VALUE IS IN THIS COURSE
As well as providing additional problem and solution practice, we supply a committed setting for
developing professional relationships with other highly qualified students, which in-turn creates study
groups for even further comprehension. Overall, our students establish a deeper understanding of the type
of questions presented on the exams. We teach our students how to apply extremely valuable knowledge,
concepts, plus tools and techniques for passing the exams.
COURSE SCHEDULE AND LOGISTICS
Saturday, February 14 – Saturday, April 11, 2015; from 8:30am to 5:30pm with a one-hour lunch break;
Held at the Auraria Campus in Downtown Denver; Detailed information on the Building and Classroom
assignment/announcement sent to enrolled students one week before start date.

UCD APPLICATION AND CEEP COURSE REGISTRATION PROCEDURE
Apply to Become a University of Colorado Denver Student…
• Apply Online at www.UCDenver.edu/cpeapp
• See our website for detailed instructions and a step-by-step guide:
www.UCDenver.edu/CEEP
• Once you are a UC Denver Student with a UCD Student ID Number,
you can then register for any of our courses.
• We can use the Paper Registration Form, however, this method could
possibly delay a student’s access to course registration, and possibly
other course-related systems.
If you have any questions, concerns, trouble, simply want me to walk you through the procedure, or if you
absolutely must submit a paper registration form, please do not hesitate to contact me regarding any
matter and/or issue:

Register Early and Save Your Seat in Class:
Registration reserves your seat in a course, much
like an RSVP. Once the course officially begins,
CEEP will then place any tuition and/or
mandatory university fees onto your UCD
Student Account.
Do Not Procrastinate: Our courses do fill-up and
http://blog.smartlab.in/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/computer.jpg
there is limited seating, especially courses
requiring a computer lab. If you choose to wait until the last-minute to register, you may be placed on a
waitlist and/or unable to join us. Remember, no monies are exchanged until the course officially begins;
payment is not required upon registration.
Registering After Deadline: We will automatically add a $200 Late Registration Fee to any Student’s
Account who registers after this course’s ‘On Time’ deadline of Friday, January 30, 2015 at 5pm.
Drop/Withdraw or Sending a Replacement: Students who wish to drop/withdraw from any CEEP
Course must do so in writing by submitting a Schedule Adjustment Form (First, contact CEEP/Heidi);
this must take place at least one week before the course begins. Please choose wisely; students do not
receive refunds once a course officially begins. Students can send a substitute and/or transfer their
registration to another individual; this must take place at least one week before the course begins. Note:
Students will not be able to drop/withdraw from our courses online.
