Advising

Lookup your MME faculty Mentor.

In meeting with your faculty mentor you will start an ongoing conversation regarding such things as career options, internships and employment opportunities, elective course choices, and graduate school opportunities both at WSU and other institutions. Students are required to meet with their faculty mentor once per academic year. Students with last names A-L will meet during the fall semester, M-Z during the spring. Contact your faculty Mentor to setup a meeting.

Campus Safety Plan
Office of Emergency Management


Classroom Safety

Classroom and campus safety are of paramount importance at Washington State University, and are the shared responsibility of the entire campus population. WSU urges students to follow the “Alert, Assess, Act” protocol for all types of emergencies and the Run, Hide, Fight response for an active shooter incident. Remain ALERT (through direct observation or emergency notification), ASSESS your specific situation, and ACT in the most appropriate way to assure your own safety (and the safety of others if you are able).
Please sign up for emergency alerts on your account at MyWSU.
For more information on this subject, campus safety, and related topics, visit the WSU safety portal (https://faculty.wsu.edu/classroom-safety/).


Professional Registration: FE Exam

ME students are required to take the FE exam prior to graduation.

Some career options may require a Professional Engineering License issued by the state in which you practice engineering. WSU students may start the registration process by taking the Washington State FE (EIT) exam during their senior year.

If you plan to take the FE, remember the exam is now computer based. Exam windows will be Jan-Feb; April-May; July-Aug; October-November so please plan accordingly based on your graduation date.

To register go to: http://ncees.org/engineering/#washington. The exam is available at the University of Idaho and you can take it there. Space will be limited and the exam will only be available during normal business hours, you may need to miss class, so plan ahead.

The course “ME 466 Fundamentals of Engineering Examination Review” is available to assist you in reviewing for the FE Exam.
http://ncees.org/engineering/#washington website link was current as of August 2017.


Laptop Requirements

Certified students have been expected to bring laptop PCs to classes beginning spring semester 2007.
