Computer Engineering

at UBC's

Vancouver Campus

In Computer Engineering you’ll learn how to develop, design, and test software, computer networks, and protocols. Every automated device has a software or hardware engineer helping to create it – whether it is the systems that control our phones, cars, planes, or robots.

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) consists of three eight-month academic sessions either following first-year Engineering or following a transfer program from first-year Science. The second year is common to both Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. In the second year, two educational streams are offered: the project integrated program (on a trial basis), which integrates principles of electrical and computer engineering with project work, and the traditional integrated learning method. Some undergraduate curriculum changes will emphasize laboratory work and engineering design, without detracting from the program’s strong analytical base. You can select an option in Software Engineering, as well as a Minor in Honours Mathematics.

Campus features

The challenging undergraduate program in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering attracts some of the university’s best students. Each year, several of our students win scholarship awards. Our student design teams regularly win prizes in regional, national, and international design competitions.
