Self Assessment - Engineering

This page explains the purpose of the self-assessment. Instructions for completing the self-assessment section are on the first page of the academic assessment form. The academic assessment form is based on the Engineers Canada, Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board (CEQB) syllabi.

CEQB Syllabi

The Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board (CEQB) develops and maintains a description of the content of generalized Canadian Engineering programs in a variety of disciplines that are commonly offered in Canada. These are known as syllabus descriptions. Each engineering discipline is comprised of two syllabi, one called Basics Studies, which is common to all disciplines, and another which is specific to the discipline e.g., Civil Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering.

APEGS uses these descriptions to determine if the content of your education has comprable breadth and depth to a Canadian Bachelor Degree in Engineering. You must meet both the basic studies and the discipline specific syllabus requirements. The Required/Optional table (R/O table) for basic studies shows which subjects are required and which are optional for each discipline.

Choose the Academic Assessment form that is closest to the discipline of you bachelor level degree.

Why do I have to do a self assessment?

You know your academic background the best. To help the Reviewer performing the detailed academic assessment, you must complete a self-assessment section of the assessment form using the information from the course-by-course WES assessment. The self assessment demonstrates to the Reviewer how your academic training compares to the Canadian standard as set out in the CEQB syllabi. The academc assessment forms are the syllabi descriptions in a different format. The basic studies and discipline specific syllabi have been combined into one document, but there are still two separate tables. The table for basic studies also takes into account the recommendations of the required/optional table that shows which of the "optional" subject are "required" for each discipline. This means that the basic studies section is slightly different for each discipline.

How do I complete the self-assessment?

The first page of the academic assessment form includes instructions on how to fill it. Please do not change the format of the form. CLick here for an Example of how to fill out the self-assessment section.

Please make your self-assessment as accurate, complete and explicit as possible, since it will be used as a guide by the person who reviews your file. This will ensure a timely and fair assessment of your academic credentials. You must provide a digital copy (preferably MS Word) of your completed self-assessment to APEGS.
