Engineering Review Courses

Engineering Review Courses

Penn State's comprehensive PE and EIT review courses have prepared engineers for their professional licensure examinations since 1968. Review sessions provide excellent subject matter that completely prepares engineers to sit for the national exams.

Courses employ a comprehensive collection of questions and answers from past exams while familiarizing participants with exam formats and procedures. In addition, all programs require participants to spend time out of class reviewing material and solving homework problems.
