NATIONAL TECHNICAL EXAMINATIONS
STANDARD PROCEDURE FOR WRITING EXAMSNational Technical Examinations (NTE) The standard for registration in Canada is an undergraduate degree in Engineering, accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of Engineers Canada. If you graduated from a non-accredited engineering program, you may be required to write technical examinations that demonstrate your knowledge and academic qualifications. The exams are assigned based on the Engineers Canada Examination Syllabus. The actual exams you write will depend on your situation. After your application has been assessed, you will be notified in writing if you are required to complete technical exams. Technical exams may be written during the Spring/Summer session (May to August) or the Fall/Winter session (October to December) of each year. You may choose the examination session at which you prefer to write. You will be given a deadline date for completing the exams. If you do not attempt to write any exams within one year of the date of the letter you received, your application will be withdrawn.
