About the PE Civil exam

The PE Civil exam is an 80-question, nine-hour exam that tests for a minimum level of competency in the field of civil engineering. It is designed for engineers who have gained a minimum of four years’ post-college work experience. The PE Civil exam is a breadth and depth examination. The breadth items cover topics from all five areas of civil engineering. The depth items focus more closely on a single area of practice. Students will have already chosen the specific area in which they want to be tested when they signed up for the exam.

The PE Civil exam is computer-based and administered year-round at NCEES-approved Pearson VUE test centers.

Study tips

  • Assess yourself by taking practice exams a few times before you sit down to do a full timed practice exam.
  • Create a personal study schedule and diligently follow it. Don’t be hard on yourself! If you are unable to understand a topic, move on to the next topic, and come back to that topic later.
  • Pay attention to the wording of problems and understand which word is most IMPORTANT. One approach is to work a problem like you would handle an actual problem at work.
