"The examination review being offered by our Continuing Education department is a logical step in the process of becoming a licensed engineer," said Dr. Albert Lozano, Director of Academic Affairs. "Preparation for the exam can be daunting, but a review such as this helps to take some of the stress out of the entire process."
This review program is designed for the practicing engineer who plans to take the Professional Engineer Examination to become registered as a professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Review sessions include three phases of engineering covered by the examination. The program reviews pertinent engineering and scientific concepts. Development of program solving skills is emphasized, and questions from past examinations are carefully examined. Topics will include: highways and surveying, hydraulics, sanitary, structures, engineering economics, and soils.
