The PE Chemical exam can be difficult. The exam tests your competency in all aspects of chemical engineering and should not be taken lightly. You should plan on taking several weeks to prepare and study before sitting for the exam.
Unfortunately, no. In 2018, the exam changed to a closed-book, computer-based test (CBT) that is available to take year-round. The exam topics did not not change; however, you are not able to bring any books into the exam. Your only reference is an electronic reference supplied by NCEES.
The PE Chemical exam tests for a minimum level of competency in chemical engineering. In most cases, you need a minimum of four years of post-college work experience to be able to sit for the exam.
The PE Chemical exam covers the following topics:
  • Mass/Energy Balances
  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering
  • Fluids
  • Mass Transfer
  • Plant Design and Operation
