CE offers review course

If you are a practicing civil engineer who wants to become registered as a professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, then Penn State Wilkes-Barre along with Penn State Hazleton will offer a review course designed to help the engineering professional prepare for the 2008-09 Professional Engineer Examination test.

Scheduled to start on Thursday, September 18, 2008 and run through April 2, 2009, the two local Penn State campuses will partner with Penn State Berks, and administer a six month, one night per week course of study that will cover pertinent engineering and scientific concepts. Sample topics include: Highways and Surveying, Hydraulics, and Engineering Economics. The course fee for the Professional Engineer Exam Review is $795.00, plus text books and course specific hand outs.

Participants, who enroll in the exam review sessions at either Penn State Wilkes-Barre or Penn State Hazleton, will receive classroom instruction as well as important program information, which will be delivered via a live interactive video technology system from the Penn State Berks campus. In addition, engineers who are enrolled in the review course will be able to learn about the most up-to-date problem solving skills and at the same time review engineering test questions found on past examinations.

For registration information, contact Ina Lubin at the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Continuing Education department at 570-675-9253 or Sally McGuire at the Hazleton campus at 570-450-3110.
