College of Engineering and Applied Science

Prepared for the Future

University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science students consistently pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam at a rate of 5-12 percent higher than the national average.

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is the first of two examinations that engineers must pass in order to be licensed as a Professional Engineer in the United States. The test is open to anyone with a degree in engineering or a related field, or currently enrolled in the last year of an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)-accredited engineering degree program. The exam is administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).

The results of the FE exam are only one indicator of how prepared students are for their academic and career challenges.

Results of a recent graduating senior survey indicate:

  • 65% completed a summer job in engineering or computer science.
  • 31.4% completed an undergraduate research experience.
  • 10.9% participated in an international experience.
  • 43.8% secured a permanent job in their major by graduation.
  • 43.1% report a starting salary greater than $60K, 63.8% report a salary greater than $50K.
  • Students appreciated the small class sizes.

Over the last five years, 82.6% of UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science seniors pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam on their first try. This compares to only about 75.2% of similar engineering majors nationwide.
