IEEQ is offered to permanent residents and Canadian citizens only, and priority is given to residents of Manitoba.
In order to be eligible for the IEEQ Program, you must be an Engineering Intern (EIT) or have had an Assessment of Academic Credentials by Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba, the result of your assessment included the requirement for Confirmatory Examinations, and, the number of required exams was five or fewer (not including Engineering Economics).
For information on an Assessment of Academic Credentials, please contact Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba.
Prospective IEEQ students must demonstrate proficiency in the English language.
If you have a CLB Placement Test, your scores must include at minimum three benchmarks of eight (8) and no more than one benchmark of seven (7) in the four language areas (for example, 8/8/8/7 or some similar combination) to be eligible for the IEEQ Program. Scores must be valid as of the start of the year in which you intend to apply. For other test types and minimum requirements, refer to the University of Manitoba's English Language Proficiency Requirements.
An application to the IEEQ Program that meets the eligibility requirements does not guarantee acceptance to the program. In the situation where there are more eligible applicants than there are available spots, a waiting list will be maintained.
There are additional important questions to ask yourself, when considering the IEEQ Program. If you are accepted into the IEEQ Program, you will be required to take third and fourth-year engineering courses, alongside the students in the bachelor degree programs. The instructors and the IEEQ Program expect you to keep up with the material, and complete the same assignments, labs, tests, and exams as all other students.
