Electrical Engineering 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. Some undergraduate curriculum changes will emphasize laboratory work and engineering design, without detracting from the program’s strong analytical base. You can select one of the following options: Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology & Microsystems, or Electrical Energy Systems,  as well as a Minor in Honours Mathematics.

Campus features

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