Engineering and FE/PE Exam Prep

Illinois Institute of Technology is a leader in providing professional engineering review courses to prepare engineers for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and the Professional Engineering (PE) exams. Passing these tests are required to obtain a professional engineering license. We offer online courses for the FE and the PE (civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, and general engineering disciplines).

Illinois Tech offers more than 35 different review classes to help prepare for the state exam. The classes are pre-recorded / scripted presentations that review the types of problems and solutions that may be on the state examination. These videos give the full review experience and contain all the information that the instructor has deemed to be relevant to the subject matter.

Online sessions are available for viewing 24 hours a day / 7 days a week and may be viewed multiple times. 

  • Fundamentals of Engineering Intern (FE) candidates should take 14-21 of the FE classes depending on their field.
  • Professional Engineer (PE) candidates should take 12-19 of the PE classes depending on their field.

Each class includes reviews of theory and sample problems. The instructor for each class is a specialist with experience in the topic area.

Our program guarantee allows you to take the program again for $75 in the following fall/spring session should you not pass your exam. However, it must be taken consecutively— if you take the program in the spring, you can re-take it for $75 but it must be in the following fall session. You can retake the program only one time.

See below for an overview of preparation courses offered through Illinois Institute of Technology.

NOTE: Registration may be made for individual sessions of the review courses but registering for the full course is the best value.
