Everything You Should Know About the PE Industrial and Systems Exam

If you are interested in becoming a licensed professional industrial engineer, here are some things you might want to know. For the most part, in order to obtain your PE licensure, you will need to earn a four-year engineering degree, pass the FE exam, obtain four years of engineering experience, and then take and pass the PE Industrial and Systems exam. Our Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Industrial and Systems exam review will help build your confidence for exam day. This exam is the last step in your goal to earning your professional engineering license.

Before Taking the Exam

Before you are allowed to take the PE Industrial and Systems exam, you will need to meet several requirements specified by NCEES. To sit for the exam, you will need:

  • A four-year degree from an accredited university or program
  • A passing grade on the FE exam
  • 4 years of engineering experience
  • A background check
  • A detailed work experience report

Because state requirements all vary, we suggest checking with your state board to make sure you are following the right guidelines.

PE Industrial and Systems Exam Fees

A fee of $375 will be due to NCEES before you can sit for the PE Industrial and Systems exam. Because every state may have different registration procedures, we suggest you check with your state licensing board in case there are separate applications or fees required to register.
