Electrical Engineering 3 Power 1(EI-PE), SC 033

About this Course: 

Electrical Engineering 3 Power 1 is one of the many 3-hour review sessions designed for engineers who plan to register as a professional engineer and wish to prepare for the examinations required to achieve this status. Licensed engineers who must fulfill registration requirements for continuing education may choose to take any of these individual classes. Your participation in these classes awards Continuing Education Units (CEU) which will be recorded on your IIT transcript.

Online PE-EI Review Sessions: In addition to live in the classroom, ALL PE-EI review sessions are available online. Online sessions provide the convenience of anytime anyplace learning and allow sessions to be viewed multiple times. The schedule for the Professional Engineering Review indicates when and at which IIT campus location each session is presented live. Within 24 - 72 hours after the live presentation, each session is made available on IIT's Blackboard Learning System and remains available for the duration of the review course. Those interested in enrolling in individual sessions who have missed the live presentation date may still participate in the online session.? Each session is made available in this way for a two-week period upon enrollment. Review Course.


Participants should have a degree in engineering and an interest in the topic.

Who Should Attend: 

This course is valuable for engineers interested in a review of the topic especially licensed engineers interested in fulfilling registration requirements for continuing education.
