Background

Seneca College is pleased to have developed a number of strategic partnerships on their “Bridging Newcomers to Related and Alternate Careers in Engineering and Natural Sciences” project.  This initiative builds on Seneca’s current bridging programs by linking the needs of Employers with Internationally Educated Professionals with a background in engineering and natural science who are seeking licensure or employment in mandatory regulated occupations or in high skilled non-regulated occupations, in the areas of Occupational Health and Safety and Information Systems Analysts and Consultants.
