PEO believes that the quality of education is of fundamental importance to the engineering profession and the public at large. The importance of education to PEO stems from its role as regulator of the practice of engineering in the Province. PEO has a legislated responsibility to ensure that:
- prospective engineers are properly educated and trained to fulfill their mandate to serve and protect the public, and remain so throughout their careers;
- the public at large understands the need for a self-regulating engineering profession and values its contribution to our society.
