Commonwealth University’s bachelor of science degree program in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) teaches students to work with the latest high-tech equipment and prepare for in-demand rewarding careers in industry.  

The day-to-day problem-solvers in the electronics manufacturing industry, technologists differ from technicians, who specialize in assembly, trouble-shooting and repair. Engineering technologists identify and solve problems with a hands-on approach based on sound theoretical concepts. CU's curriculum reflects that practical approach. To prepare students for real-world careers, the 4.5-year program is structured so students serve a six-month paid apprenticeship. This unique arrangement means students pay tuition for only four years.

Many jurisdictions require engineers to be licensed in order to practice. Licensure also provides additional career options and opportunities such as starting your own company or working as a consultant.

How Do I Get Licensed?

Step 1: Graduate
  • Graduate with an ABET accredited B.S. degree in Engineering or Engineering Technology
Step 2: FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) Exam
  • Most engineering students take this exam right before or soon after graduation
  • Once you pass the FE exam, you are classified as an Engineer-in-Training (EIT)
    • Also known as Engineering Intern (EI)
Step 3: Work Experience
  • Four (4) or more years of progressive experience in engineering work earned after the issuance of
    the EIT certificate
  • Experience shall be under the supervision of a P.E. or similarly qualified individual
  • You may obtain one year of experience credit for each post-baccalaureate degree (not to exceed
    two years)
    • Shall be full time student in the same engineering field
Step 4: PE Exam
  • Principles and Practice of Engineering
  • After completing the required work experience, you can take this second exam in the licensure process
Step 5: Now you are a Professional Engineer!
  • John Smith, P.E.

What is Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam?

  • Eight hour long exam: Two four hour sessions
    • Closed book (Reference material supplied)
    • AM session
      • General exam common to all disciplines
      • 120 multiple choice questions
