The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) held their 169th meeting on February 6. Highlights from the meeting include:
Earlier in December, over 90 participants from 30 higher education institutions took part in the 2020 GACIP Summit Plus. Because COVID-19 public health measures prevented an in-person event, the summit shifted from a regional meeting to a national event. This year’s summit addressed GACIP concepts and explored broader questions and experiences arising as engineering programs nationwide moved to remote delivery.
On February 18, the CEAB released a new statement on COVID-19. Building on the statements previously made by the CEAB with regards to COVID-19, and in light of our better understanding of what the short-, medium- and long-term implications the global pandemic will have on CEAB accreditation, this update is intended to provide additional information on the CEAB’s position on several important aspects of their work.
