About the Review Courses

Since 1968, Penn State's comprehensive PE and EIT review courses have prepared engineers for their professional licensure examinations. Review sessions provide excellent subject matter that completely prepares engineers to sit for the national exams.

Courses employ a comprehensive collection of questions and answers from past exams while familiarizing participants with exam formats and procedures. In addition, all programs require participants to spend time out of class to review material and solve homework problems.
