The Engineers Canada (EC) began accrediting undergraduate university engineering programs in 1965. The process for accrediting an engineering program is undertaken by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB), a working Board of the Engineers Canada (EC).
Accreditation means that engineering graduates from the program have the academic qualifications necessary for registration as a professional engineer (P.Eng.) in Canada Engineering programs are evaluated by the CEAB at the request of the institution offering the program, and with consent of the regulatory association/ordre in the province or territory where the institution is located. In Ontario, Professional Engineers Ontario is the regulatory association
Our History and success with the Accreditation Process
Agricultural Engineering: 1973-1995.
Biological Engineering: 1973-
Engineering Systems and Computing: 1994-
Environmental Engineering: 1993-
Food Engineering: 1993-2000.
Water Resources Engineering: 1973-
In addition to the established programs listed above, the School is offering the following three new programs, with the year of the first graduating class in brackets:
1.Mechanical Engineering ( first graduating class in 2013 )
2.Biomedical Engineering ( first graduating class in 2014 )
3.Computer Engineering ( first graduating class in 2014 )
Currently these three programs are on track to be accredited, as CEAB procedures are such that site visits are not made until the graduating class enters the final semester of studies. Based on the School's understanding of the CEAB criteria, plus our success of getting new programs accredited in the past, the School expects similar success in the future with our new programs.
