A civil engineering technology degree gets you started on your path to a professional engineering career. Graduates with a Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering Technology may sit for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination administered by the State Board of Professional Engineers and Surveyors. This examination is the first of two required for registration as a professional engineer in the State of Montana. After passing the FE, students are qualified under the state law to pursue careers as engineers in training. With that FE and four years of progressive responsibly experience and other criteria as set out by the Montana Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, graduates may then sit for the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Successfully passing this exam means the individual will be licensed as a professional engineer in the State of Montana.
