Engineers without PEng?

According to a front page article in the Excalibur of 14 September 2005:
The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board [CEAB] and the Professional Engineers of Ontario [PEO] have yet to accept York engineering students graduating from the current programme thus denying the designation PEng. A further decision on the matter will be rendered by PEO in December.
This only affects students who entered the programme prior to 2001.
The programme is not lacking in the academic curriculum!
Apparently something is lacking from the administrative structure of the programme.

Part of the issue is that there is a requirement of students actually graduating from the programme, thus this is the first potential time that the programme accreditation could be supplied and applied for by the University.
