Engineering Proficiency Exam (EPE)

Engineering Proficienct Exam (EPE) is a written exam on the basic principals of mechanical engineering; which is conducted within the scope and evaluation of MM423 Mechanical Engineering Applications I course. (Official decision of Undergraduate Program Commission, meeting date 27th July 2015) 

  • The grade of MM423 course for each student will include 75% of the project report evaluation score and 25% of the EPE score. 

  • Number of questions for EPE has been updated as 70 and the exam duration is reduced to 150 minutes.  (5th June 2017)

  • Students are free to use calculators during the exam. 

  • The exam includes the subjects of the following courses.
