Signing up for the FE or FS exam is easy!

It is easy for engineering and surveying students and other FE/FS applicants to register for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) or the Fundamentals of Surveying Examination (FS). Beginning back in June 1, 2015, applicants for the FE/FS Exam now enroll directly with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) at, and then register for the FE or FS examination seat at a Pearson-VUE test center. This enables students to take and pass the FE or FS examination. Then, after completing all the requirements, apply to the Board for their Intern Certificate.
