Thursday, June 15, 2017

The School of Sustainable Design Engineering (SSDE) at UPEI has been granted accreditation from the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). The CEAB accredits undergraduate engineering programs to ensure they provide the academic requirements for licensure as a professional engineer in Canada.

Wayne MacQuarrie, national chair of the CEAB, is an alumnus of UPEI and a member of the first graduating class of engineers, receiving his diploma in 1972.

“One of the things that’s unique about this particular program is the whole concept of project-based learning—essentially a move away from your traditional engineering education in a classroom setting,” said MacQuarrie.
