About this event

In 2008, the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) updated its criteria and procedures, moving toward a model that emphasizes continuous improvement as well as program outcomes. Although outcomes-based assessment is a well-established component of many national engineering accreditation boards, it is relatively new in the Canadian context.

In this talk, Dr Brennan explores how this change in engineering accreditation requirements has already impacted how the next generation of engineers are being educated.

Free to attend: Guests and members of the public welcome.

A complimentary snack will be served after the presentation.
