Continual Improvement

Before the end of 2019, the CEAB will be holding consultations on several key areas: engineering design, the role of the general visitor in accreditation visits, and criteria 3.4: Curriculum content and quality. During the summer, Engineers Canada will be reaching out to stakeholder groups to invite them to participate in these consultations. We will be sharing more information in the coming weeks. If you have questions, please contact us at accreditation@engineerscanada.ca

The CEAB held its annual accreditation decision meeting this month in Ottawa. This year, decisions were made on the accreditation status of over 70 programs at 14 institutions. Institutions that underwent visits in the 2018-2019 cycle will receive official decision letters by the end of month.

The Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey closed on June 21, 2019, marking a successful introduction of our new data management system, Tandem. Thank you to those institutions who provided data this year. The survey continues to be a critical tool for understanding the trends and composition of engineering education in Canada. If you have any feedback on your experience providing data through the survey, please get in touch with us at accreditation@engineerscanada.ca.

May 13, 2019 marked the launch of this year’s Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey, which was particularly exciting because it also marked the first deployment of our new data management system, Tandem.
