“The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is generally the first step in the process of becoming a professional licensed engineer (P.E.). It is designed for recent graduates and students who are close to finishing an undergraduate engineering degree from an EAC/ABET-accredited program” – FE Exam NCEES

For most engineering majors, numerical methods is a required portion of the math part of the examination. Here is an example of using Euler’s method to numerically solve an ordinary differential equation.
