“The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board was established by Engineers Canada in 1965 to accredit undergraduate engineering programs that provide the academic requirements necessary for licensure as a professional engineer in Canada.
In addition to advising Engineers Canada on all matters related to engineering education, the Accreditation Board works closely with Canadian universities to ensure that graduates of accredited engineering programs have the skills they need to become productive members of the profession.” Engineers Canada 2011
Modifications are taken place to insert an attribute based system to accredit programs. CFES conducted a survey in 2011 about these attributes and received more than 1000 answers.
This year survey had three main goals:
- Have more than one year of answers to compensate the change of students every four years
- Collect more responses to have a more representative population to work with
- CEAB is still modifying the new procedures and CFES would benefit to have recent data
CEAB also showed interest about have a student input on these modifications as they are directly affecting the students.
