Update on Dr. Z’s PRO-BONO FE/PE Review Classes for Students and Engineers from the Washington Metro Area
As readers of the NCS eNewsletter know, we are very fortunate to be associated with Dr. Ahmet Zeytinci (known to his UDC students and colleagues as “Dr. Z”) of the University of the District of Columbia. For two decades, Dr. Z has been holding free study sessions for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Professional Engineer (PE) exams, open to all students and young professionals in the NCS area. Dr. Z has also authored a monthly feature in the newsletter, Dr. Z’s Corner, since September 2014. (See http://www.asce-ncs.org/index.php/special-features/dr-z-s-corner). Because of his deep commitment to engineering education and tireless contributions via the newsletter, Dr. Z’s program has gained both national and international attention for helping young engineers develop the knowledge and confidence to pass the exams. Additionally, his track record of students passing the exams is impressive.
In the fall, Dr. Z plans to continue his pro-bono review sessions at a new venue: George Mason University (GMU) has agreed to provide facilities for Dr. Z to hold sessions for students from other institutions and practicing engineers in the NCS’ region who wish to conquer the FE and PE exams. The sessions will be held on Fridays from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in room 3507 of the Engineering Building, beginning August 31 and continuing through December 14, 2018 (every Friday except the day after Thanksgiving, November 23).
|Fall Semester (2018)||CEIE 404.003||Fridays 10:30 am – 1:10 pm|
|CEIE 404.002||Fridays 01:30 am – 4:10 pm|
|Spring Semester (2019)||CEIE 404.002||Fridays 10:30 am – 1:10 pm|
|CEIE 404.001||Fridays 01:30 am – 4:10 pm|
In addition to the pro-bono review sessions, GMU has arranged for Dr. Z to teach two sections of a newly created class during the fall 2018 and spring 2019 semesters. The class, Senior Engineering Competency Exam, will be held as shown below. These sections will be limited to GMU engineering students and alumni.
