The Pittsburgh Chapter of PSPE offers review course twice yearly for the PE and EIT exams. Start dates are fast approaching!
The Civil PE exam review course, beginning on August 12, helps exam applicants prepare for the Civil PE exam. The topics are taught by professional engineers who have both industry and teaching experience. The review course consists of 30 hours of lectures covering the common topics of both the breadth and depth Civil PE exam. The topics include: structures, construction management, geotechnical, highway design and traffic analysis, environmental, and water resources
The EIT Review Course, beginning on August 12 is for all disciplines, and helps engineers prepare for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. The review course consists of 30 hours of lectures covering common exam topics.
In addition, the Chapter also offers a Civil PE Mini-Refresher course, beginning on July 22. To be better prepared for the Civil PE Review Course, the Pittsburgh Chapter offers a three (3) session Mini Prep Review Course which includes six (6) subjects prior to taking the PE Review. This mini course is primarily for engineers who have already passed the EIT Exam, but feel a need to brush up on some subjects that are of importance for the Civil PE Review Course or for those who plan on taking the Mechanical PE Exam. This mini course is being offered because we have found that many engineers have not used certain basic skills for some period of time and need a brief review to allow them to take full advantage of the material presented in the Civil PE Exam Review Course. Our goal is to give all students the best opportunity to be successful on the PE Exam. These sessions will review selected topics in mathematics, statics, strength of materials, physics, electrochemistry and engineering ethics.
Please contact the Chapter office or our education director, Steven Musial, P.E. if you have any questions. Cell: 412-956-6448
