Faculty of Engineering receives full accreditation from CEAB
All five B.Sc. (Engineering) programs accredited for maximum possible six-year time period.
The Faculty of Engineering is pleased to announce that after review of all five B.Sc. (Engineering) programs, the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) has granted a full accreditation for the maximum possible six-year term.
Engineers Canada, through the CEAB, accredits Canadian engineering undergraduate programs. Students who receive a degree from an accredited engineering program meet the academic requirements needed to become a licensed Professional Engineer with Canada’s engineering regulators and, through an international agreement, in nineteen other countries. The CEAB sets national criteria for engineering accreditation to ensure that Canada’s professional engineering standards remain amongst the best in the world. The board is comprised of volunteer members that are senior engineering practitioners from academia, the public sector, and private industry. The CEAB accreditation process involves review of extensive documentation associated with both program inputs and outcomes, and an accreditation team visit to the Faculty to evaluate facilities, and meet students, staff, faculty and leadership of the engineering community.
“This is the best possible outcome that reaffirms what we already know about our engineering programs; we have outstanding programs, facilities, students, faculty and staff. I take this opportunity to thank the large number of people in our Faculty that contributed to this excellent outcome.”
–Dean Jonathan Beddoes
The Faculty’s next accreditation review will take place in 2024/25.
