National Engineering Accreditation Granted

The engineering programs in BCIT’s School of Energy recently received confirmation of national accreditation for the bachelors of engineering in both the electrical and mechanical degrees. A team from the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) conducted a three day visit in November 2013, where the team examined the quality of the curriculum and facilities for both degree programs. The accreditation team also reviewed program submissions and forwarded a report to the board which releases its decisions in June. CEAB accreditation allows program graduates to register with the provincial professional engineering associations. BCIT views CEAB accreditation as a significant part of its quality assurance process and is proud to have achieved this important recognition for its electrical and mechanical engineering degree programs.
