CE and ENVE Students:
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.
Both CE and ENVE UConn programs are accredited; so, you should sign up as Class 9S.
- List three faculty members who know you; you do not need their signatures.
- The address should be the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, U-3037, Storrs, CT 06269.
- The application can be filled in by hand.
- Since you are getting an accredited degree experience is not needed. Thus, you can leave this part of the application blank.
- The UConn Co-Op has a Notary available.
- Your picture can be taken at copy centers, etc.
- The Registrar's Office at the Wilbur Cross building can process the "Certificate of Education".
- You do not need to fill in the "Verification of Registration" form.
- The EIT application and information are available online at the following URL http://www.ct.gov/dcp/cwp/view.asp?a=1624&q=275974
- The completed application is due by the posted deadlines at the following URL http://www.ncees.org/Exams/States/CT.php
- You should keep copies of all application material.
Once you have been approved to take the exam, there will be another fee to cover the actual cost of administrating the exam. You will be notified when your application is accepted and at that time you will need to send another check to the national testing service.
Again, the CEE faculty strongly encourages you to take this exam in your last semester along with your classmates.
