You should know that the program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and has been since 2003. Also In British Columbia you can register as an Engineer in Training (EIT), just like any other graduate from an accredited program. After your four year EIT program, you can opt to register as an Integrated Engineer. The qualifications are available on the APEGBC web site. There are now at least three graduates in BC with a P. Eng. in the Integrated Engineering designation. Other graduates from Integrated Engineering have also registered in other disciplines consistent with their majors or minors.
