Electrical Engineering (BEng)

Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)
Offered by:
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science

Why study Electrical Engineering?

Control energy with a flip of a switch. Design next-generation microchips or flight control systems. Electrical engineers build electrical and electronic devices and systems that we depend on every day — whether they are very small (like the microchips in our cell phones) or very large (like the power grids or charging stations for electric cars).

Choose to specialize in Electronics/VLSI, Telecommunications, Power and Renewable Energy or Avionics and Control or create your own path based on electives that suit your interests. Our state-of-the-art labs for digital electronics, electric power systems circuits and digital communications will give you experience with the tools you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study mathematics and engineering science
  • Design circuits and electronics systems
  • Analyze signals and design systems to control a robot, extract information and transmit
  • Work in a Co-op program  and get real world experience in the microelectronics, telecommunications and power industries

Our program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Program Details

A Bachelor of Engineering degree takes a minimum of four years (120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.


After the successful completion of first-year core courses, students may choose to take one of four specialization options:

  • Electronics/VLSI Option
  • Telecommunications Option
  • Power and Renewable Energy Option
  • Avionics and Control Option

Students who do not select an option must choose a minimum of 30 credits from the Electrical Engineering electives list.
