Cal State LA’s Fundamental Engineer/Engineer-In-Training (FE/EIT) test prep review course prepares the candidate for the FE examination with National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). The 60-hour review classes are held at the university main campus on 10 consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the spring and fall.
All FE/EIT are taught by faculty from Cal State LA’s College of Engineering, Computer Science and Technology (ECST). U.S. News & World Report "America's Best Colleges" issue has ranked Cal State LA's engineering program among the nation's best undergraduate programs.
Who Should Enroll?
The FE/EIT course is for qualified applicants who must register and pay for the FE examination through NCEES.
