About the FE Mechanical Exam
The FE Mechanical exam consists of 110 exam questions that cover a variety of mechanical engineering topics. The exam is a Computer-Based test and examinees have six hours to complete the exam. For reference, participants may use the FE Reference Handbook to help guide them during the exam.
Examinees who take the FE Mechanical exam typically are striving to become professional mechanical engineers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Mechanical engineers design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, engines, and machines.” Passing the FE Mechanical exam is the first step in becoming professionally licensed. Once examinees pass the FE, they can then begin preparing for the PE Mechanical exam.
According to NCEES, the national pass rate for the FE Mechanical exam from January to December 2019 was 76%. School of PE’s students had a much higher pass rate that the national average. Ready to pass the FE Mechanical exam? Sign up for a review course today!
