General academic requirements

P.Eng. Licence Application Pause

Please note: PEO will not be accepting new P.Eng. licence applications between June 24 and July 11, 2022 as we transition to a new, fully online application system. Please return to the PEO website after July 11, 2022 to apply for a licence using PEO’s new online application system.

To satisfy PEO’s academic requirements to obtain the professional engineer licence, the P.Eng. applicant must hold a bachelor’s degree from an engineering program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) or equivalent academic qualifications. If the applicant’s engineering program(s) is not CEAB-accredited, PEO will assess the academic background to determine whether it is equivalent to the academic qualification in the discipline of engineering.

Please note, there are currently zero graduate degree engineering programs accredited by the CEAB.
