Everything You Should Know About the PE Chemical Exam

If you are interested in becoming a licensed professional chemical engineer, here are some things you might want to know. The general path to professional engineering licensure consists of obtaining a four-year degree in engineering, passing the FE exam, gaining four years of hands-on engineering experience, and then passing the PE exam. Our Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Chemical exam review course will help prepare you for the PE Chemical exam. This exam is the next step for individuals who have taken and passed their Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Chemical exam and have earned an engineer-in-training (EIT) certificate.

Before Taking the Exam

Engineers will need to meet several requirements before they can take the PE Chemical exam. These requirements vary between states but will typically include fulfilling your state education requirement with an accredited program, successfully completing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, earning at least four years of engineering experience, passing a background check, and submitting a detailed work experience report. Each state has different eligibility requirements, so be sure to check with your state board to ensure you are following the proper processes.

PE Chemical Exam Fees

Examinees will need to pay $375 to NCEES to take the PE Chemical exam. We recommend you check with your state licensing board on any specific registration procedures in case any separate application or fee is required to register for the exam.

Exam Specifications

The PE Chemical exam is designed to assess an individual’s competency in chemical engineering. It is 9 hours long, includes 80 questions, is computer-based, and is administered year-round at NCEES-approved Pearson VUE testing centers. The exam includes both multiple-choice questions and alternative item types (AITs). It uses the International System of units (SI) and the US Customary System (USCS).

  • Nondisclosure agreement (2 minutes)
  • Tutorial (8 minutes)
  • Exam (8 hours)

NCEES will send an email to each candidate with instructions on how to see results through their MyNCEES account. More information about how NCEES scores exams can be found here.
