All Civil Engineering (CE) and Environmental Engineering (ENVE) students should aspire to become licensed engineers. You do not know what you will be doing in the future, and as a registered professional engineer, you will have the greatest number of career options. There are two exams needed for Registration as a Professional Engineer. The first exam (Engineer-In-Training or EIT or FE) should be taken during the last semester of your undergraduate studies as it truly is the best time to take it; it is when you best know the material needed for the exam. Generally, taking the exam at this time does not take a lot of preparation, other than preparing what is needed to submit the application.
The following webpage gives instructions for registering for the FE exam. Note that the Connecticut Board no longer requires you to register through them. Now the process is to first register for the exam through the testing agency NCEES. Once you have passed the exam, you must go through the process of obtaining the CT EIT certification, which requires more steps. If you are eligible for testing accommodations, you may submit a request to NCEES during the registration process. Please note that the review process for such requests may take up to 30 days. More information is available at the NCEES Special Accommodations page.
