Today, RRC Polytech marked the accreditation of eight of its programs by Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC).
The accreditation is the result of a comprehensive audit that includes a tour of each program’s labs and student support services, and interviews with its students, faculty, alumni and graduates’ employers.
The eight programs that received accreditation are:
· Electronic Engineering Technology
· Electrical Engineering Technology
· Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technology
· Mechanical Engineering Technology
· Structural Engineering Technology
· Architectural/Engineering Technology
· Municipal Engineering Technology
· Environmental Engineering Technology
“Achieving accreditation for these programs is a real win-win,” says Derek Kochenash, Dean, School of Skilled Trades and Technologies at RRC Polytech. “Not only does accreditation open doors to even more career opportunities for our students, it provides our partners in industry with the essential talent to help their organizations achieve their goals.
“RRC Polytech is grateful to Technology Accreditation Canada for this acknowledgment. The accreditation reflects the high quality of these eight programs, while enhancing graduates’ credentials as they enter the workforce.”
National program accreditation provides students, industry and RRC Polytech with confirmation their program has met defined standards.
Accreditation also affords graduates an expedited path to certification through the Certified Technicians & Technologists Association of Manitoba (CTTAM) and provincial certifying bodies across Canada.
“We congratulate each program for its commitment to delivering to students a high quality program that meets the current standards of the engineering technology and applied science profession,” says Stephen Morley, Chair of TAC’s board of directors.
