PE Nuclear Exam Preparation Module Program

The PE Nuclear Exam Preparation Module Program is a video-based preparation tool aimed at those studying to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam in Nuclear Engineering. The modules are instructional with occasional worked example problems, and an overview of each module's contents is given as a list of Learning Objectives at the end of the video.

The module program is organized according to the four specification areas (listed in the downloadable exam specification) that make up the PE Nuclear exam, plus a general area that provides background information that may be applicable to multiple areas:

  • General Knowledge
  • Specification Area 1: Nuclear Power Systems
  • Specification Area 2: Nuclear Fuel Cycle
  • Specification Area 3: Interaction of Radiation with Matter
  • Specification Area 4: Nuclear Criticality/Kinetics/Neutronics

Notice: This program is under construction. The Contents listing below is tentative but gives an approximation of the material covered by the program. Users may purchase segments of the program one specification area at a time, once each becomes available.

Every effort has been made to make these videos as time-insensitive as possible. However, certain references (most notably the PE Nuclear Reference Handbook) are living documents that undergo frequent updates. All figure numbers, table numbers, page numbers, etc., are accurate as of the time of production, but please be aware that such references may change over time. If you spot an error, please notify us.

A list of contributors can be found on the project credits page. More resources for prospective exam takers can be found on the PE Nuclear Exam Preparation page.

Prior to purchase, you can view a list of Learning Objectives to see what material is covered in each module.

Upon purchase, the modules are accessed by clicking the titles below to expand the contents menu. Each specification area contains videos on multiple topics. Simply click each title to access the videos within each topic.
