Hi dear all,

I'm graduate student studying environmental engineering and this is my second semester now.

I'm thinking about taking the FE exam but my undergraduate study was in environmental science and I'm an international student, so most state won't accept me as a candidate.

Does anybody know which states will accept student with my background to take the exam?

Thank you so much, everyone.

Wayne

Probably you need to be in your last semester of enviromental engineering to apply..the curricula of enviromental science could be kind of different than enviromental engineering....

For example...most states wont accept bachelor in engineering technology accredited by (TAC/ABET....."TECHNOLOGY ACCREDITATION COMMISSION" by ABET)...the only thing they accept is bachelor engineering accredited by (EAC/ABET...."ENGINEERING ACCREDITATION COMMISSION by ABET)....i dont know is that would help you understand.

Check if you college or university and most important that the engineering degree that you are enrolled right now is Accredited by ABET at www.abet.org

Either way, you being an international student, the board you are applying to will evaluate your transcripts before they give you approval to sit for the test. I think you should put in your application and see what the outcome is and then act accordingly. Good Luck

Thank you so much for your reply, it's very helpful.
The program I'm in now is accredited by ABET, some other people told me the same thing that I have to wait till the last semester of my master degree. I will try to apply just using what I have right now and see what they want and how it goes.
Thanks again.

Hi,

I did my undergrad from another country too and completed my Masters in Environmental engineering from US. Please let know whether you were able to apply with just the transcripts from here.

-Thanks

neha: You cannot apply with transcripts only from US. You have to provide undergrad and grad school transcripts for evaluation. Since you did not mention your undergrad degree, I assume it's evniron. engineering too. In your case, it should not be an issue since you already have environmental engg in both undergrad and grad assuming undergrad is envi. or some engg related. Good luck.

Actually, I did successfully registered for the exam in April, in Michigan. Seems like they don't check whether you are qualified to take the exam or not, but I'm not sure if there will be anything go wrong later...Anyway, just so you know, I've did it.
