Home - FE Exam – NEW Digital Format beginning January 2014

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam is converting to a computer-based test format beginning in January 2014, with more opportunities throughout the year to sit for the exam.   

***You no longer have to submit a paper application to the Dean’s Office in order to take the FE Exam***

Registration for the computer-based FE exams opened on November 4, 2013.


The Maine engineering board does not require examinees to submit an application or an additional fee prior to registering with NCEES and scheduling an exam.

Examinees will be provided one attempt per testing window and no more than three attempts in a 12-month approval period, beginning with the examinee’s first attempt. Examinees who require more than three attempts or allow their 12-month approval period to expire must contact the board directly to obtain additional approvals.


Exam results for the computer-based FE exams are typically available within 7–10 business days. Examinees will receive an email notification from NCEES with instructions to view their results in their My NCEES account. Results will include a link to your licensing board for additional state-specific information or instructions as appropriate.
