  1. That is correct for AB. But it doesn't deviate from my original point that getting a P.Eng is a plus for the application but not a must. It is not that hard with just 3 more years of experience, assuming OP has 1 from his undergrad. I got my P.Eng now declared non-practicing, not sure how much it helped.
  2. You are under the wrong impression According to Professional Engineer Ontario, one of the provincial engineering regulatory body: "No. Legally speaking, you are an engineering graduate, not an engineer. Only holders of a P.Eng. license are legally permitted to use the title “P.Eng.” or the term “engineer” in their job title, or to use any other term, title or description that may lead to the belief that they are authorized to practice professional engineering.

I am a grad applicant, apparently, it is considered as competitive by OMSAS https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/omsas-toronto/ Does that mean they would be like hmmm... ok, I might give you an interview if your ECs are above average?
  4. 1. Get your P.Eng, 99% of applicants don't have it, practicing engineering is similar to practicing law and med - quit calling yourself an engineer before that 2. Do a grad degree, it will lower the cut off, broaden your options 3. Study for MCAT 4. Stay in Alberta longer to be considered IP 5. 79 is around a 3.2 ?
  5. Are you licensed as an engineer in your province? If not, it is illegal to call yourself as an engineer and practice the engineering without supervision of a 'P.Eng' . If licensing is still in process, I wouldn't put 'engineer' as a job title since it is considered deception.
