Minors

Professional accreditation

Graduation from one of UVic's nationally accredited undergraduate engineering programs is the first step to becoming a licensed Professional Engineer (PEng). Only a Professional Engineer is licensed to practice engineering in Canada.

An engineering graduate must have between two and four years of on-the-job engineering work experience under the supervision of a Professional Engineer, as well as pass a professional ethics exam, to obtain a PEng.

The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC regulates and governs the professions under the authority of the Engineers and Geoscientists Act. They set and maintain high academic, experience and professional standards for all members.

You can register as a student member through the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC.
