Step 2: Academic Assessment

Internationally-Trained Engineer or Geoscientist

If you are an internationally-trained engineer or geoscientist who has completed an appropriate post-secondary program (typically bachelor's degree) and who wishes to practice engineering or geoscience in Manitoba, you will be legally required to become registered with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba.

This means that even though you have a university degree in engineering or geoscience and you may have worked as an engineer or geoscientist in another country, you may not call yourself a professional engineer or professional geoscientist in Manitoba until you have become registered with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba.

Also, you may not take responsibility for engineering or geoscience work until you have become licensed with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba. Therefore, you must undergo an academic assessment unless you are currently registered with another Canadian Engineering or Geoscience association.

Canadian-Trained Geoscientist

Geoscientists who hold a four-year honours/specialist/major degree from a Canadian University, are required to apply for a Canadian Geoscience Assessment.
