Permitted Calculator Models

Format 1 - No calculator permitted.  The exam may be Closed or Open Book.                                         

Format 2 - There are two calculator models permitted for this format: either a Casio or Sharp model.  The exam may be Closed or Open Book.   Note, any alpha letters that immediately follows the calculator model number is fine except for the letter ‘s’ which means the calculator is programmable.  If the letter ‘s’ is in combination with other alpha letters, then the calculator is acceptable i.e. ‘ms’. (Please note that “none” in the list of aids represents no further instructions for this exam.)

Format 3 - Any non-communicating calculator will be permitted.  The exam will be an Open Book exam.  Candidates will identify the calculator used on the inside left-hand sheet of the exam workbook (i.e., name and model designation. (Please note that “none” under aids and instructions means that you may bring as many textbook(s) or notes etc. into the exam. There are no restrictions with this format 3 exam.)   Please note space allocated to candidates writing open book exams will be the same as closed book exams. Therefore, you will need to limit the number of textbooks brought into the exam room. 

Writing the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam

It is possible to write the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Engineering exam instead of confirmatory exams. You must register to write the exam directly with NCEES. The application fee is payable to NCEES at the time of registration. When you register to write the exam make sure you choose APEGS from the list of boards and partners. That way we will be notified of the results.
