Three Things to Know
Make sure you are taking the correct courses to register as a geoscientist-in-training (GIT) after graduation. Unlike engineering programs, geoscience programs in Canada are not accredited; this means it is the student’s responsibility to ensure he/she is taking the necessary courses to be academically qualified. Geoscience syllabi are available at egbc.ca/geoscience-syllabus.
If you haven’t already set up an account with the Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia online Competency Experience Reporting System, stop everything and request access now. What is the system and why is it so important? The Competency Experience Reporting System is our online system for recording, assessing and validating engineering work experience. Co-op and pre-graduation work experience may count for up to 12 months of your four-year work experience requirement, so familiarize yourself with the system and start recording. Learn more and request access to the system at egbc.ca/competency.
Did you know that engineering and geoscience master’s students are now eligible for Student Membership? Master’s students have the option to register as members-in-training (if they meet the academic qualifications) or student members. Please note that master’s students already registered as EITs or GITs are not eligible for Student Membership. The annual membership fee is $25.
