FE Ambassador Program

FE Ambassadors serve as on-campus representatives with the purpose of engaging fellow engineering students through activities such as engineering society student chapter meetings and events, licensure presentations, on-campus advertising, and social media.

NCEES has partnered with five schools to provide FE Ambassadors for the 2023–24 academic year—Clemson University, Kennesaw State University, North Carolina A&T, North Carolina State University, and University of North Carolina Charlotte. Engineering students at these universities who meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to submit an application before June 30, 2023.

Eligibility requirements

  1. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time of application
  2. Class standing as a senior or graduate student for the 2023–24 academic year
  3. Will be enrolled on-campus for both Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 academic terms
  4. Intend to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam or have taken and passed the FE exam
  5. Available for in-person training August 25–27 in Greenville, South Carolina


FE Ambassadors are expected to participate 3–5 hours per week while classes are in session on their campus and will be paid $2,500 per semester. Ambassadors should:

  • Identify engineering student groups for sharing information, activities, and presentations on their campus
  • Respond to requests for presentations regarding the FE exam and/or licensure
  • Schedule and announce times each week to respond to student questions regarding the FE exam
  • Identify existing engineering events on their campus to promote the FE exam and licensure each semester
  • Network and build trusting relationships with all engineering students and faculty to promote the FE exam
  • Use various marketing techniques to share information regarding the FE exam and licensure across campus

Training and support

NCEES will train all ambassadors through a combination of virtual and in-person training sessions. Ambassadors will be required to attend in-person training August 25–27 in Greenville, South Carolina. NCEES will provide on-going support to ambassadors through the academic year.
