FE-INT: Interview Preparation and Experience Review (36 Online Hours)PRE-REGISTER FOR NEXT OFFERING
Due to Covid-19, all classroom-based courses have been converted to 36-hour online courses. There will be no classroom-based courses running at the EPIC facilities.
The 36-hour online courses will be confirmed once we have a minimum of four students registered; if we have less than four, a 10-hour alternative condensed course will be offered.
Students are advised to register at least two weeks before the starting date so that courses can start on time. Late registrants may be allowed to join the second session, provided they spend time outside the scheduled session hours to get caught up. All other classes are offered as ten-hour online courses.
Experience Report Review and Interview Preparation
When applying to the Provincial Engineering Association (such as PEO - Professional Engineers of Ontario) for your professional license, along with your academic qualifications, you are required to submit an engineering experience report.
EPIC conducts a review for your engineering experience report prior to your submission. A Professional Engineer, who is also an instructor, assists you in reviewing and revising the report to maximize its effectiveness.
The instructor also helps prepare you with hints on what to do and what not to do for your interview.
This program can be provided online or any location you find suitable.
Online Course Format
Instructor-Led hours with the student (typically weekly)
- Designed to give the students the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge that will allow them to
- understand the fundamentals of engineering relevant to the course, and therefore,
- pass the technical exam
- Conducted using state-of-the-art online meeting and collaboration software (software is free for the student)
Internet connection and any of the following:
- PC (Windows or Mac) with audio (USB headset recommended), or
- Tablet (iPad or Android), or
- Smartphone (iPhone or Android)
- Before each class, the instructor may ask students to review or read topics from sources that include: specific book sections, instructor notes, web resources, etc.
- During the live online class, the instructor will
- explain the relevant fundamental theory and the most important concepts
- solve example problems (from or similar to old exams, and from other sources)
- answer questions the student(s) may have about the current class, previous class, or homework
- guide the student(s) to exactly what they need to do to prepare for next class assign practice problems
- Instructors use a variety of modes to deliver their live online classes: in addition to real-time audio interaction and explanations, a whiteboards and/or PowerPoints’ are common (both are made available in a printable format to the student after each class).
- A fair bit of self-study is expected on the part of the students, especially for pre-requisite topics. However, this is highly guided by the instructor, who also sets the pace and scope of the courses.
- Usually all the syllabus is covered. However, based on his/her expertise and judgment, the instructor may stress some parts of the course over others.
- In very few courses with very wide syllabi, the instructor may skip some contents that are deemed rare to appear on exams. This typically happens in solve-five-out-of-eight-questions exams, and will be communicated clearly to the students.
- If the frequency of email questions is reasonable, the instructor is usually going to respond to email questions. The instructor may prefer to defer some questions to the online session.
