As an engineering school, all undergraduate programs must be certified by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, as must all engineering schools in Canada. In this accreditation, there are 12 requirements that undergraduates students must meet in order to practice the profession. One of these requirements states that all undergraduate programs must have a sustainable development learning objective. It is in Article 3.1.9., «An ability to analyze social and
environmental aspects of engineering activities. Such ability includes an understanding of the interactions that engineering has with the economic, social, health, safety, legal, and cultural aspects of society, the uncertainties in the prediction of such interactions; and the concepts of sustainable design and development and environmental stewardship. »

ÉTS has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and has taken the necessary steps to ensure that its programs meet the requirements.

For undergradute short program and graduate programs, a manual analysis by sustainable development resource people was conducted to identify programs that have a sustainable development learning objective. The programs can be found in the attached document.
