School of
Information Technology and Electrical Engineering

Students in certain programs within the School of ITEE, may be granted up to a maximum of #4 elective credit in total for approved industry certifications which are current at the time of graduation.

The School will maintain a list of approved certifications and the credit which may be granted for each – usually #2 per certification. Credit will only be possible if the student has elective credit space within their program.

Students are responsible for providing an original certificate or certified copy whose validity can be checked with the issuer and whose expiry date is no earlier than the student’s graduation date (or date of conferral of the degree). Certifications without an expiry date must have been obtained within 3 years of the graduation date. Applications for credit should be submitted to the EAIT Faculty office (50-S204).
