Can I take the FE for Civil Engineering, and get EIT certification in Civil? I got my B.S. in Nuclear Engineering last December. I was not required to pass the FE to get it, and therefore decided to spend my time not studying. I performed atrociously. An opportunity has presented itself in the realm of Civil Engineering. I would start out in a lab, and maybe with EIT in Civil, I could work my way up to a better position with the company as a PE. I am thankful for all input on this matter.
