2013 Chi Epsilon officers

Chi Epsilon is dedicated to the purpose of maintaining and promoting the status of civil engineering as an ideal profession.  The organization recognizes the characteristics of the individual deemed to be fundamental to the successful pursuit of engineering. The SIUE Chapter of Chi Epsilon was inducted as the 121st chapter of the Honor Society of Chi Epsilon on April 26, 1997.  As of April 20, 2013, the Chapter has initiated 250 undergraduate students, four graduate students, one alumnus, one faculty member, and one chapter honor member.  Dr. Steven Hanna, advisor for the SIUE Civil Engineering Honor Society (the predecessor to Chi Epsilon), was initiated as the first Chapter Honor Member in 1999

The SIUE chapter of Chi Epsilon is providing FE review sessions in Fall 2013 in the Engineering Building at SIUE. They will run from early September through late October in the afternoons and evenings. The exam is set for October 26, 2013 and as planned, roughly ten weeks of review will be held. Tentative topics to be covered are Chemistry, Electrical Circuits, Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Solids, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mathematics and Statistics; and introductory topics in the fields of Transportation, Structural, Environmental, and Geotechnical Engineering. The review sessions are taught by the SIUE faculty members and have helped many past students and professionals pass the FE exam. The cost for non-SIUE students is only $10 per session, which will be collected at the beginning of each review session (make your check payable to "Chi Epsilon"). For the updated schedule of review sessions, please re-visit this website or contact Brad Walwer at
