More students and recent graduates of Missouri S&T took the Fundamentals of Engineering exam offered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) last year than any other school in the nation, according to an NCEES report.

In 2022, 586 exam registrations were attributed to S&T. Texas A&M came in second with 467, and Montana State University was third with 455.

“At Missouri S&T, we understand the importance of preparing our students to have a successful career, and taking the FE exam really gives them a leg up in the process,” says Dr. David Borrok, vice provost and dean of the College of Engineering and Computing. “Also, the fact that so many S&T students and recent graduates successfully take this exam says something about them and about our university. Students from S&T want to hit the ground running so they can use their knowledge and skills to have an impact and help shape the future.”
