In Canada, a degree for studies in an accredited undergraduate engineering program is either named Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng. or B.Ing. in French), or equivalently, Bachelor of Applied Science (Canada is the only country that awards the B.A.Sc degree for graduating engineers). Graduation from an accredited program, which normally requires 4 years of study, is a mandatory first step to become a “Professional Engineer”. Regulation and accreditation are accomplished through a self-governing body (the name of which varies from province to province), which is given the power by statute to register and discipline engineers, as well as regulate the field of engineering in the individual provinces.
Successful completion of the equivalent of a Canadian secondary school academic program with strong marks.Although some institutions may request above 70% or B average for their academic admission requirement, many engineering programs are highly competitive thus making the standard for entry requirements quite high, above 80% or A average at some institutions. Admission officers are looking for students with exceptionally strong marks in Mathematics, Chemistry and English. Strong proficiency in English (or French if studies in French). A TOEFL (iBT) is required for most institutions, minimum score required is 90. Many institutions accept equivalent tests such as IELTS.
