EIT/FE Exam Preparation

The Engineer-In-Training/Fundamentals-of-Engineering exam is the first step towards the goal of the P.E. after your name later in life.


Sponsored by the ASME Student Sections at Penn State-Erie

The EIT review is approximately a ten-part lecture series focused on preparing juniors and seniors for their first step toward a professional engineer’s license. A different topic will be covered each week by a professor experienced in that area. The lectures will last from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) on the dates indicated.
