Successful completion of an Engineering Certificate is included on transcripts. Note that no course counted for degree credit can be counted for more than one minor or certificate.

Leadership education is about learning how to effectively handle complex, human challenges that often mean the difference between success and failure. Engineers are taught to think analytically and systematically. Leadership skills build on these strengths to make you a more effective engineer. More than just important, they are critical. This certificate recognizes a demonstrated focus in leadership courses provided jointly through the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering and the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering. Students in all disciplines are eligible to participate in this Certificate.

Students pursuing the Certificate in Engineering Leadership must successfully complete a minimum of 3 courses from the list outlined below:

  • Availability of the courses (including the foundational courses) for timetabling purposes is not guaranteed; the onus is on the student to ensure compatibility with their timetable.
  • If a student is pursuing both the Engineering Leadership Certificate and another Minor or Certificate that lists the course, the courses listed above can only be counted towards one certificate or minor, not both.
