Performance on the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination
The Fundamentals of Engineering examination is the first test a graduate of an ABET accredited engineering program must pass in order to achieve registration as a Professional Engineer (PE). The test is administered twice a year nationally. In 2001, the engineering program at TCNJ became the first engineering program in the State of New Jersey to require that all graduates take the exam prior to graduation.
