Licensure and Certification Information

Generally, one of the requirements to become a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) includes a having an earned undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited program. Please note that as a master’s-level program this is not designed to, and is not sufficient to, meet the educational requirements for PE licensure. Individuals with non-engineering undergraduate degrees, degrees in disciplines outside of engineering, or international undergraduate degrees should contact the State where you intend to seek licensure to learn more about the PE licensing requirements. While you are able to submit your education credentials to NCEES for review, there is no guarantee that the M.S. degree will qualify you to be able to take the FE exam, the first step toward engineering licensure.
