The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists

I need to Complete a Technology Report

 
If you are eligible to become certified as an engineering technologist (i.e. a graduate of a three-year post-secondary engineering or applied science technology program or equivalent), you will be required to complete a Technology Report (TR). The purpose of the TR is to assess your ability to effectively examine and describe an engineering or applied science technology problem. In the TR, the candidate should provide well-structured recommendations and/or conclusions using his or her academic background and work experience.
 
The process for completing the TR is as follows:
  1. Submit a proposal for the TR.
  2. IETO approves the TR proposal.
  3. Submits the full TR for assessment within one year of proposal’s approval.
For more detailed information about the TR, see the Technology Report Guidelines document. 
 
To submit a technology report proposal, please email it as an attachment in Word or PDF to  Audrey D'Souza at adsouza@oacett.org
 
To submit a technology report after your proposal has been accepted, mail one copy meeting our specifications as listed in the TR Guidelines mentioned above to: Audrey D'Souza, IETO Administrative Assistant, 10 Four Seasons Place, Suite 404, Toronto, ON, M9B 6H7.
 
These sample Technology Reports have been provided for our members' convenience to review online to understand the expectations for the TR. The sample reports may not be copied, printed or reproduced, in whole or in part. 
 
  1. Civil
  2. Electrical
  3. Mechanical
 
 
The Technology Report Writing Seminar is offered throughout the year, in-person and online, to help members prepare to write a TR. The seminar focuses on all aspects of Technology Report writing, from topic selection to proposal writing and helpful hints for submitting a successful report. View our video to find out more about the seminar.
 
The online version of the seminar takes a step-by-step approach through videos, quizzes, assignments and access to a knowledgeable instructor. It takes the often daunting task of writing a technology report and breaks it down into manageable components. The Online Technology Report Writing Seminar includes:
 
  • Eight video-based modules with accompanying quizzes that can be completed at your convenience on your computer or mobile device over a three-month period.
  • A downloadable Participant’s Manual that acts as a reference guide, checklist and workbook. 
  • Access to an experienced instructor who will offer feedback and respond to questions via email and the electronic discussion board.
  • A Certificate of Completion that can be downloaded and printed once you’ve successfully completed the course.
 
The Online Technology Report Writing Seminar costs $375.00 + HST.  Click HERE to register.

What TR Writing Seminar participants are saying:
 
“This seminar will greatly help me to write the OACETT Technology Report, as well as writing in my day-to-day work.”
 
“This seminar gives a better idea of what OACETT is looking for and helps you to get started much faster.”
 
“The trainer was excellent and all the components were appropriate and valuable”
 
“It not only informs you on the technicalities of writing the report, but gets you started on it by making you think of its components. It's well broken down into manageable tasks.”
 
Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) accredits engineering technology and applied science programs at post-secondary educational institutions in Ontario for the purpose of identifying whether they meet the profession's approved standards and criteria. Applicants who graduated from a nationally accredited program and completed a Technology Report as a part of that program (as recorded on official transcripts) are not required to submit a TR to OACETT. Graduates from a nationally accredited program who did not complete a TR as a part of their studies must submit one to OACETT before they can recieve the C.E.T. designation.
