Centennial College Adds Accreditation to 4 Programs

Centennial CollegeThe Centennial College School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science has added national accreditation to 4 more of their programs.

The Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) has recently recognized Centennial’s Software Engineering Technician, Software Engineering Technology, Health Informatics Technology, and Software Engineering Technology – Interactive Gaming programs.

“National accreditation of our programs by CTAB means that our graduates meet all of the academic requirements for certification by the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) and other similar certifying associations across the country,” said Jag Mohan, Dean of the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science.

Centennial College now offers 21 nationally accredited programs, the highest amount of any school in Ontario.

The four programs were accredited by CTAB, as well as the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS), as part of the dual accreditation pilot initiative.

The CIPS called Centennial College “a well-run school in well-maintained buildings with motivated staff and faculty teaching a proud and successful student body.”

Elsewhere, The Canadian Forces (CF) has recognized nine of Centennial’s information and communication engineering technology programs, which gives them authorization to give necessary training requirements for CF military occupations.
