  1. So i just passed my PE Exam in the state of FL in Oct, 2018. I currently work in the Power Industry designing power poles. Back when I graduated from college in 2011 (BS in Civil), the job market was in the tankers and continued till about 2015-16. This whole time i've kept my current job and now became a Project Manger overseeing the office i work in. HOWEVER, i really want to get back into Civil (Specifically in Water or Environmental). Is it to late for me to switch? Since I have a PE will any company want to hire me on as Entry Level? Anyone else in the same situation? PS - I'm willing to take a bit of a pay cut in the beginning, but hope to make some decent money later in my career after i've proven myself. Thanks for the replies in advance!
  2. I have the following Civil PE and WRE Depth materials for sale (see pics). All of them are like-new with no markings/highlighting. I originally planned to take the exam back in 2013, so some of the materials were purchased then (to the tune of $700+). I purchased the newer NCESS practice exam in 2017 when I actually got around to studying for (and passing, YAY!!) the exam. I've included the copyright and ISBN numbers for each. Take it all off my hands for $320. Free shipping for 4 books or more. $5 shipping for 3 or less. Paypal preferred. PM me with questions or offers. I'll update if/when books are purchased.

Thanks y'all, and happy studies!!
  3. Hi everyone, This is my first post though I've been ransacking these forums for over a year now. A little background: I graduated with a BS degree in mechanical engineering in 2011. I never took the FE in school, it wasn't really encouraged for MEs. After graduation I got involved with the drinking water industry, primarily treatment plants and distribution system designs. My employer has really started to stress the fact that I should get my PE so I'll be eligible to move up in the ranks. That meant first taking the FE, which I studied my butt off for and by some miracle passed in May 2017 after being out of school for 6 years. My goal is to the PE exam in April 2018 but I am extremely undecided on which discipline to go for. I'm considering Mechanical: Thermal/Fluids or Civil: Water Resources & Environmental. Mechanical Pros: Looking at the NCEES specifications I'd say I feel fairly comfortable with about 50% of the material and at the very least recognize the other knowledge areas. Having just studied for the FE, topics like Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, and Thermodynamics are relatively fresh. Mechanical Cons: Thermo/Fluids were HARD in school for me so I can imagine the PE Exam has the potential to be downright horrendous. For all I know I may have bombed these sections in the FE and just gotten by on math, statics, strengths, etc. I don't know anyone who has taken it in the past - no study materials available ($$$) Civil Pros: More relative to my current work Most of my coworkers/friends have taken this route - and offered to let me have/borrow their study resources/references Easier (???) subject matters than Thermo/Fluids CivilCons: 70% of the topics on the NCEES specifications are completely new to me - the only topics I recognize are structures, groundwater, water quality, hydraulics, and drinking water distribution and treatment. I've never had any courses/experience in hydrology, storm water, waste water, soils, construction management etc. I guess it comes down to whether I should choose the devil I know vs. the devil I don't. Has anyone else ever been torn making a choice between the two and if so what did you decide? Any other MEs choose to take the Civil PE and if so what was it like teaching yourself all those non-ME topics from scratch? For those that took the ME Thermal/Fluids exam, how did the level of difficulty compare to the questions on the FE (for those that remember way back then..)? If you made it this far, thanks for reading! Any advice much appreciated.
  4. This seemed like the best sub to ask for career advice. If I'm wrong, I apologize! I majored in engineering because I liked problem solving, learning how things work, and unique challenges. In the working world I come across new challenges occasionally, however, even after a couple of workplace changes, working as an engineer just isn't fulfilling to me anymore. Because of that, I don't see my career progressing much further without any real passion. Business seems to be my natural path. I'm planning on going back for an MBA and changing careers to something totally different. I'm skilled in programming, Excel, making presentations, and utilizing big data (ArcGIS). I love to imagine myself at the executive level at some water company or consulting company, making big decisions and increasing profits. My questions: 1) Has anyone from this board made a similar move? Is the grass greener? 2) How rare would it be to find a position that would require/utilize both CE and business knowledge? I don't exactly want my degree and PE to go to waste either.
  5. I just wanted to touch base with everyone prepping for the April exam. It's been all quite on the home front...a little too quite. Anyways how is you studying progressing, how many hours are you putting in per week, how are you feeling about the material. I am taking EET review for both breadth and depth. The depth is going great. I am putting in the 8 hrs of time for live webinar and roughly 2 hours a day to complete problems so I'm at around 20 hrs a week. I plan to up the weekly time from now on. So far I am feeling somewhat confident with the info I am getting from EET. Any input from previous takers on the amount of time you spent per week would be great also. Thanks!

  7. Hello, I'm am almost finished with my undergrad in biology and am planning on pursuing a Master's degree (preferably in Europe). Originally I was going to get a MSc in oceanography, marine science, limnology, water resources, or something similar. But I learned that environmental engineers make more money. I want to work in an environmental field dealing with water problems, either ecological or water quality. The problem is that I want to find a balance between doing what I enjoy (field work) and making decent money (50k/yr+). I don't want to make 100k/yr and hate my job but I also don't want to work in a field I love and barely make a livable wage. Can I focus on water problems, marine or freshwater, with an environmental engineering degree? I don't really want to be working with wastewater treatment. Does it matter if I get a degree in Europe (e.g. Germany, Austria, Belgium, etc.)? Is there a balance between field work and office work with an environmental engineering degree, or is it almost all office work? Do offshore oil companies hire environmental engineers? Also, are there jobs that combine scuba diving and environmental work that pays well? Thank you very much for all of your help!
  8. Hi everyone, my name is Travis... I found out yesterday I am eligible to sit for the PE exam in April. I work as a civil doing forcemain design, gravity design and site plans. I typically see these projects through construction... but I am wondering if I should go Water Resources or Construction? How in depth does the construction afternoon session go? I appreciate any information/guidance you all can provide me! TD

  10. I'm taking PE for the first time in April 2015 - 8-hour (Water Resources and Environment depth), as well as the seismic and surveying. I started studying for the 8-hour about a month ago (5-10 hours a week) and am ramping up now, hopefully getting to 10-15 hours/week from here on out. I was originally planning to use the following study schedule, but now think that I may be spreading myself too thin: Oct - Jan: 8-hour studying on my own using PPI books/practice problems and PPI/NCEES practice tests Feb - Hiner Seismic Course March - Reza Mahallati Surveying Course April - Final 8-hour/seismic/surveying studying and TESTS! I recently was advised to just focus on the 8-hour the first time around, and then go back next year for seismic and surveying. Of course it would be wonderful to pass all 3 the first time around, but I'm worried that if I try to fit in everything then maybe I wouldn't pass anything! What studying strategies worked for you? Any recommendations are appreciated! Also, is there anyone else in the Bay Area studying for the Civil that would like to team up?
  11. For those interested, below is a brief breakdown of the new WR/ENV (AM) portion of the exam. The AM portion of the exam focuses entirely on Water Resources (i.e., no Environmental in the morning – at least according to the NCEES breakdown.) I know this change will make a lot of you happy. Below are the topics to be covered during the Breadth (AM) portion of the April 2015 exam: Water Resources and Environmental (17.5% – 7 out of 40 questions) A. Open-channel flow B. Storm water collection and drainage (e.g., culvert, storm water inlets, gutter flow, street flow, storm sewer pipes) C. Storm characteristics (e.g., storm frequency, rainfall measurement and distribution) D. Runoff analysis (e.g., Rational and SCS/NRCS methods, hydrographic application, runoff time of concentration) E. Detention/retention ponds F. Pressure conduit (e.g., single pipe, force mains, Hazen-Williams, Darcy-Weisbach, major and minor losses) G. Energy and/or continuity equation (e.g., Bernoulli) VIII. Site Development (2.5% – 1 out of 40 questions) C. Temporary and permanent soil erosion and sediment control (e.g., construction erosion control and permits, sediment transport, channel/outlet protection) This brings the total Water Resources problems up to 20% for the Breath (AM) exam for – similar to years before. A more detailed breakdown of the changes (including differences between the previous exam specifications) can be found here: http://goldenratiopublishing.com/blog/ I will try to post a breakdown of the depth (PM) changes shortly ... Best of luck to anyone studying for the April 2015 PE exam, Harry
  12. Anyone interested in a group study in the King of Prussia/Philadelphia area? Please message me if interested. Thanks - Molly

  15. Looking for a Study Group in the Tampa area for the April 2014 Civil Exam - Depth (Water Resources) Please msg me if you would like to study and are in the area (Cleawater-St.Pete)
  16. Can anyone suggest a good study/review book for the Water Resources and Environmental Depth portion of the exam? I work for a small consulting engineering firm and we specialize in drainage design. I have absolutely no problem with Hydraulics and Hydrology, but it is more of the environmental topics that I have struggled with. I have taken and failed the exam twice now, with both times my scores in WWT, WQ and WT being poor to say the least.

  21. In Six minute solutions for water resources #37, they find the velocity of the flow in the channel by the equation v=SQRT2gh. The head was given as 42 ft and the depth of flow was not given. The equation for energy (head) of the flow is H = d +v^2/2g (Eq19.62 CERM). Based on the solution, it appears they neglected the depth of flow. Is this assumption that d is negligible made because the flow condition is supercritical flow, and thus the depth is likely to add negligible head/energy? Later we will find that the depth was only 1.3 ft, which indeed provides little energy compared to the 52 fps velocity. However I would like to be clear why this assumption is made.
  22. Hi Guys, So I was running through the NCEES practice problems and one of them asked to use the "critical oxygen deficit" equation for the Streeter-Phelps Dissolved oxygen sag curve. I was using Goswami's equation: tc = (1/kr-kd) x ln[(kdLo-krDo+kdDo)/kdLo) x (kr/kd)]. I ended up getting the wrong answer, as it turns out (from the solution, google, and other sources) the equation they used was: tc = (1/kr-kd) x ln[(1-(Do(kr-kd)/kdLo) x (kr/kd)] This is very frustrating, there are so many little mistakes in the Goswami book that I find myself wasting my time cross checking it's validity. Which equation should I use when it comes time for the exam?
