About the FE Environmental Exam

This 6-hour Computer-Based Test (CBT) provides exam participants with 110 environmental engineering questions. Because the FE Environmental exam is a CBT exam, it can be taken anytime throughout the year (provided the examinees are approved to take the exam). Find the nearest NCEES-approved Pearson VUE test center to schedule your exam.

Those who take the FE Environmental exam are typically aiming to become Professional Environmental Engineers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, environmental engineers “use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control.”

The national pass rate, according to NCEES, was 76% for the FE Environmental exam between January and June 2018. School of PE’s FE Environmental students had a much higher pass rate that the national average.
