TMS Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Professional Engineer (PE) Licensing Review Course
August 20–22, 2015 • Warrendale, PA, USA
Online registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending please e-mail MaryTherese Gallagher, TMS Event Specialist, or call at (724) 776–9000, ext. 213.
The metallurgical and materials version of the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Licensing Exam is the second part of the licensing examination's requirement toward becoming a registered professional engineer in metallurgy and materials. The first part is the Fundamentals Exam (FE), which should be taken by the aspiring professional engineer prior to sitting for the principles and practices exam.

This preparation course will address a variety of approaches and methodologies, including design, analysis, application, and operations. The knowledge areas covered in the course will be reflective of the actual exam specifications, as published by National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).
The course is designed for individuals planning to take Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Professional Engineer (PE) Licensing Exam and meet the general examination qualifications.*
  • Graduate from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited four-year college or university program with a degree in engineering (e.g., bachelor of engineering, bachelor of science in engineering, master of science in engineering, master of engineering) or, in some states, graduate from an ABET accredited four-year college or university program with a degree in engineering technology.
  • Complete a standard Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) written examination, which tests applicants on breadth of understanding of basic engineering principles and, optionally, elements of an engineering specialty.
  • Accumulate a certain amount of engineering experience; in most states the requirement is four years, but it is lower in some. For engineering technology graduates, the required number of years may be higher.
* Examination requirements vary by state. Potential exam takers should consult their state licensing board for specific requirements.
The course will include refresher training on the following topical areas:
  • Ferrous materials, specifically encompassing stainless steel, cast iron, carbon steel, and alloyed steel
  • Light and nonferrous materials, specifically encompassing titanium and titanium alloys, aluminum and aluminum alloys, copper and copper alloys, intermetallic alloys, precious metals, refractory alloys, superalloys, and other nonferrous metals
  • Ceramics, polymers, composites, and electronic materials, including glasses, functional ceramics, engineering ceramics, elastomers, thermoset, thermoplastic, composites, silicon, and other semiconductor materials
The course will be based on the NCEES Principles and Practice of Engineering Examination Metallurgical and Materials Exam Specifications, Effective Beginning with the October 2015 Examination. For more information please click here.
