News and Updates

THIS POLICY TAKES EFFECT ON JULY 1, 2017

The Maryland Board for Professional Engineers voted on June 8, 2016 to allow all exam candidates for the Fundamentals of Engineering examination to apply directly to NCEES without first seeking approval from the Board. This applies to all exam candidates regardless of their degree.

In order to obtain an Engineering In Training (EIT) certificate, the candidate must meet the educational standards approved by the Board. Those standards are cited in the Business and Occupations Article, Section 14-305 (b) or (c) and the corresponding regulations.

Passing the FE examination does not automatically qualify the candidate for an EIT certificate or to take the Principles and Practice Exam (PE). The applicant must meet all of the requirements for licensure.
Those requirements are education, verifiable work experience and passing of the FE and PE exams. The number of years of required work experience is based on the candidate’s education. It typically is either 4 years or eight years depending on the candidate’s degree.

THIS POLICY TAKES EFFECT ON JULY 1, 2017

On May 11, 2017 the Board for Professional Engineers voted to no longer accept Washington Accord designations as “equivalent” to the NCEES Education Standard.

The Board also voted to recognize the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) as “equivalent” to the NCEES Education Standard.

The Board will automatically accept ABET accredited programs from international institutions.
