Baldwin, Allen J. and Karen M. Hess.
A programmed review of engineering fundamentals. 1978.


An Engineer Intern is an engineer or engineering student who has passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. The FE exam is formerly known as the Engineer-In-Training (EIT) Exam. Passing the FE exam meets one of the requirements to become a Professional Engineer (PE). This certification is NOT equivalent to a PE license and will not allow you to use the title engineer or consult independently as a PE license does. More information about the exam including fees and the application form can be found at their website:

Requirements Engineering Fundamentals. 2011
In practice, requirements engineering tasks become more and more complex. In order to ensure a high level of knowledge and training, the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) worked out the training concept “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering”, which defines a requirements engineer’s practical skills on different training levels. The book covers the different subjects of the curriculum for the “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering” (CPRE) defined by the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB). It supports its readers in preparing for the test to achieve the “Foundation Level” of the CPRE.

The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is taken by college graduates looking to gain entrance to graduate school the arts, business, the sciences & humanities and many other disciplines. Admissions officers from top programs report that it is one of the most important factors for admissions. With an increasing number of graduate and business school applicants and an increasing number of GRE test-takers—and a recent test overhaul by the test-maker—a high GRE score is critical to set yourself apart from the competition.
