December 11, 2004 - College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) continues to develop opportunities for further education. Recently an articulation and transfer agreement was signed between College of the North Atlantic in Canada (CNA) and the University College of Cape Breton (UCCB). Representatives from both institutions recently visited Doha, Qatar to sign a letter of acknowledgement with CNA-Q.

The original articulation agreements were signed in two (2) broad programming areas – Engineering Technology and Business – to provide CNA diploma graduates with options for degree completion.

In the case of Engineering Technology, the articulation agreement was signed in October 2003 between CNA and UCCB's School of Science and Technology. This agreement provides CNA graduates in eleven (11) Diploma programs – including Architectural, Civil, Electronic, Electrical, Environmental, Geomatics, Industrial, Mechanical, Manufacturing, Petroleum, and Manufacturing Operations – with degree completion options for UCCB's Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems Development, Emergency Management, Environmental Health, Environmental Studies, and Petroleum.

In the case of Business, the original articulation agreement was signed between CNA and UCCB's School of Business in July 2002. This agreement provides students graduating from CNA's Business and Information Technology Diploma programs with degree completion options in UCCB's Bachelor of Business Administration and the Bachelor of Technology-Information.

This latest acknowledgement letter provides students studying at CNA-Q with the same degree completion options at UCCB, thereby furthering the international educational opportunities for CNA-Q students.
