IMMIGRATION PROCESS FOR ENGINEERS
In the case of engineers who
want to start the process of immigration to Canada, first of all a good
choice is to begin the process requesting an evaluation of the engineer
degree. The Canadian Council of
Professional Engineers (CCPE) is the organization in charge
of regulating the profession of engineer in Canada.
The assessment carried out by
the CCPE is called EIEAP (Engineering International- Educational
Assessment Program). This assessment allows comparing the program of
Engineering of the school which granted the degree with the Canadian
Engineering program. The EIEAP analyses and compares the subject and the
academic program of the school witch granted the degree with the
American academic program to get the same school level (basic learning,
subjects, time schedules, duration of the courses, contents, labs,
trainings, projects, areas of specialization, etc.) EIEAP is the only
service of specialized assessment of the credits of Engineers.
The CCPE has information of
the schools and educational institutions of many countries all over the
world. If the degree of engineer was granted by a qualified university
or school of engineering and also is well known by the CCPE, the
trainees would get an EIEAP CERTIFICATION with a positive evaluation,
valid as a first step to immigrate.
There are several advantages
of getting this EIEAP assessment. The evaluation of the EIEAP will be a
great advantage for the engineer immigrant in order to facilitate the
immigration process, considering that is original from a Canadian
professional organization and it shall be useful for the Visa officials
to make a positive evaluation of the documents. Besides, the engineer
can show it later in Canada when looking for a job, or in schools
(whether the person is considering taking an advanced course) and in
other official situations.
With the result of the EIEAP
assessment by the CCPE, the Engineer shall receive useful information
about the engineering profession in Canada and the stages that should be
followed to be an engineer with a professional license in Canada.
In order to be able to work
as an engineer, a process of PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION should be done
later that is a bit more complicated and shall require taking some exams
and updating courses and/or other studies.
If you are an engineer
(whether in the areas of Mechanics, Chemistry, Electricity, Civil or
Manufacturing) is highly RECOMMENDED to start the process of immigration
firstly requesting the assessment
International-Education Assessment Program (EIEAP)
to the CCPE.
