PE Industrial exam moving to spring administration
May 1, 2012
Following the October 2012 administration of its PE Industrial exam, NCEES is moving the exam to an April administration. The first offering of the exam with this new schedule will be in April 2013.
When the exam is offered in April 2013, it will also have new specifications, which indicate the knowledge areas to be tested and their relative weights of emphasis. As the developer of the exams used for engineering licensure in the United States, NCEES—in partnership with the Institute of Industrial Engineers—conducted a survey of licensed engineers working in industry, government, private practice, and academia to gather information about the knowledge and skills required of professionals in industrial engineering. With support from IIE, NCEES used the results to update the exam specifications.
“The exam will not change for the October 2012 administration,” explained Tim Miller, P.E, the director of exam services at NCEES. “We’ll offer the exam at the same time we have been, and we’ll use the current exam specifications. But in April 2013, we’ll begin holding the exam at a new time and using the updated specifications.”
The new specifications are available at the NCEES website. Updated study materials will be published in October 2012.
