What is the PE exam?
The PE (Principles and Practice of Engineering) exam is a test created by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). For most disciplines, it is the second test (the first being the FE) that has to be passed in order to become a licensed Professional Engineer. According to the NCEES, it is designed for engineers who have gained at least four years of post-college work experience in their chosen engineering discipline.
