A degree from the Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) program is the start of an exciting, promising career that can go in many different directions. CEE graduates work in the private sector or for local, state, or federal government; they may also become consultants or go into academia or continue to graduate or law school.

The first step to becoming a licensed professional engineer: passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, offered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). The FE exam is taken after graduating from an ABET-accredited engineering program, such as WPI’s. All WPI Civil Engineering majors are strongly encouraged to take the FE exam.
