Any engineers take the FE exam? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat

Fundamentals of Engineering exam.

I forget which society or certification it is, but several of my professors had pinky rings related to engineering.

Similar to the per-province associations, PE registration is on a per-state basis in the US.

The FE exam is generally taken during the senior year of college. After passing the FE, the new "engineer in training" must obtain something like four years of practical engineering experience before taking the PE exam. Passing the PE exam would then allow the engineer to be licensed as PE. Apparently, the FE requirement might be waived if the PE applicant has an advanced degree and/or many years of experience. The exact requirements seem to vary state-to-state.

I have one of those stainless steel pinky rings too. Mine is for the Order of the Engineer. I must admit that I don't wear it very often, but that'* mostly because I find rings annoying.

Thanks for the explanation Teuobk.

I see that the US was first introduced to "the ring" in 1970 and adopted it from Canadain Engineering Society which has had them since 1925.
