John A. Swanson School of Engineering

Licensure is not a requirement of a BS degree, as only partial requirements may be attained at graduation. Taking the FE exam is optional and not a SSoE requirement for graduation.   

To become a licensed professional engineer (PE), students must: (1) graduate with a BS from an ABET accredited program (all of Pitt's SSoE engineering programs are accredited), (2) pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam (typically taken in the last term of classes), (3) pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam taken ~4 years after graduation, and (4) verify four years of experience in industry. Licensure can vary according to state requirements.

Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration
