Technology Accreditation Canada
Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) today launched its 2020 Technology Report Contest, open to students in their final year of a TAC and CTAB accredited program.
Each accredited program may submit one technology report, written by an individual or a group of up to four students. The report must be a minimum of 3,000 words and follow general learning outcome GY01 Technology Report, which includes research, design, testing, analysis and conclusions related to a significant technology-related issue.
Reports will be first judged by a panel of subject matters experts. The top three reports in each engineering technology and applied science discipline will go forward to a final judging panel which will select the top three reports. Judges will assess the reports on originality, complexity, academic rigor, innovation, conclusion/recommendations and overall presentation/format.
“The Technology Report Contest is a wonderful legacy from CTAB and we are pleased to continue it,” remarks Richard Stamper, TAC Executive Director. “The contest is a great opportunity to showcase the incredible talent of students in national accredited programs.”
The top entry will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000, with second place and third place awarded $500 and $250 respectively. The deadline for the contest is June 30th. Contest details and the entry form are available at 2020 Technology Report Contest.
Through accreditation, TAC is committed to partnering with educational institutions to ensure students receive a quality education that meets the standards of Canada’s engineering technology profession.
