CEAB AND GCREAS SIGN AN M.O.U. FOR MUTUAL COLLABORATION

Also during the official visit to Engineers of Canada Headquarters in Ottawa, GCREAS signed an Memorandum of Understanding with the CEAB. This inter-institutional agreement, which had been in the process of negotiation for some time, was finally formalized to govern the future collaboration between the two agencies. In the context of this new M.O.U., similar to the one assigned by GCREAS with ABET, our agency will be able to get the recommendation of Canadian engineers to get involved as team leaders for GCREAS evaluation visits, and send GCREAS Peer Evaluator candidates as Shadow Visitors in CEAB’s visits to complement their training, among other cooperation activities.   This agreement is added to the other accords signed by GCREAS with sister organizations in the Americas, to expand its fruitful international cooperation in promoting better quality of engineering education worldwide.
