August 28, 2014

Conestoga College’s Electronic Systems Engineering program has received accreditation from Engineers Canada. To achieve accreditation, the program was subjected to a thorough review by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). “We are very pleased to receive this validation from Engineers Canada for our program,” said Conestoga President John Tibbits. “The CEAB accreditation is a confirmation of the quality both of the program and the project-based learning approach, and recognizes the skills and knowledge of our graduates as they begin their careers in engineering.” Conestoga is the first college in Ontario to host accredited engineering programs, and one of only 2 in Canada to do so. The college also offers an accredited degree program in Mechanical Systems Engineering. Conestoga News Release
