This course is a review of electrical engineering fundamentals required to pass the National Council of Engineering Examiners Principles and Practice Examination in the discipline of Electrical Engineering in the Power Emphasis. It is designed to aid the electrical engineer in preparation for the PE examination by presenting an organized review of material ordinarily contained in a college electrical engineering curriculum. Primary emphasis will be on problem solving with orientation as close as possible to the type of questions contained in the exam.

 

Additional instruction and material is available for other Electrical Engineering exam options. Please consult instructors.

 

Prerequisite: Engineering or equivalent degree

4 years electrical engineering experience
