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.
