Consultation period:
October 1, 2020 - December 4, 2020

Consultation status:

Between October 1 and December 4, 2020 we consulted with stakeholders on a proposed new definition and interpretive statement for a definition of engineering design to be used in the CEAB accreditation criteria.  

The objectives of the consultation were to:

  1. Inform stakeholders of an alternate definition of engineering design (and therefore revisions to the Design Graduate Attribute, Criterion, and development of a new interpretive statement on engineering design) is being considered.
  2. Investigate stakeholder reaction to the report recommendations.
  3. Consolidate and synthesize stakeholder feedback with the objective of putting forward a list of recommendations for implementation.
  4. Identify barriers to change if the report recommendations are adopted.
  5. Develop a reasonable implementation plan that accommodates the diverse viewpoints of stakeholders.
