Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam Review
Visit the NCEES FE website or the NCEES YouTube channel for details on the FE exam. The FE exam is offered in seven disciplines; the FE chemical exam is outlined below. The FE exam is a computer-based test. An electronic reference booklet of equations and constants is supplied at the beginning of the exam. The exam uses both the International System of Units (SI) and the US Customary System (USCS).
Chemical exam specifications (6 hours - 110 questions in 16 topic areas)

The FE chemical exam consists of 16 chemical engineering topics: mathematics, engineering probability & statistics, engineering sciences, computational tools, materials science, chemistry, fluid mechanics/dynamics, thermodynamics, material/energy balances, heat transfer, mass transfer and separation, chemical reaction engineering, process design and economics, process control, safety, health and environment, ethics and professional practice.  The 6 hour time frame also includes a tutorial, a break, and a survey.
