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).
Our state-of-the-art labs for digital electronics, electric power systems, microfabrication, 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:
Design circuits and electronics systems
Study, design and fabricate micro devices
Design communications systems (protocols, antennas, channel modulation, networks)
Design power electronics for renewable energy and electric transportation
Learn signal processing techniques for analysis of bio medical signals
Design control systems for airplanes and other vehicles
Work in a Co-op program and get real-world experience in the microelectronics, telecommunications and power industries
Admission is based on applicants’ overall CRC plus preferably a minimum of 24 in both mathematics and physics, and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC. Missing courses will be added to the program.
For all BEng programs and the BCompSc Computer Systems Option: CHEM 101 or 202-NYA; MATH 103 or 201-NYA and 203 or 201-NYB and 105 or 201-NYC; PHYS 101 or 203 NYA and 201 or 203 NYB
STUDENTS COMPLETING A THREE-YEAR TECHNICAL DEC
Students completing a three-year technical DEC in a related field may also be eligible for admission without the specified profile provided they achieve a minimum overall CRC indicated below and preferably a minimum of 24 in math and physics course(s) required for their Cegep program. Missing prerequisites will be added to their program. Students may be eligible for exemptions/transfer credits based on course equivalencies.
UNIVERSITY TRANSFER APPLICANTS AND MATURE STUDENT
Applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements are encouraged to apply and may still be considered for admission, provided they have completed the majority of the prerequisite courses. Transfer credits may be considered on a course-by-course basis.
Prerequisites for university transfer applicants
The following courses are required in addition to the program and may be completed at another post-secondary institution prior to admission or at Concordia.
For all BEng programs and the BCompSc Computer Systems Option: Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra, Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, General Chemistry I
Engineering students are able to add a minor in another discipline once they have completed at least 21 credits and if they maintain a GPA of 2.70. Refer to the Undergraduate Calendar for details.
Minimum cut-off averages
Applicants who meet the minimum cut-off averages are not guaranteed admission. Grades in Math and Physics (Chemistry, if Physics not offered) should normally meet the minimum cut-offs. IB Math and Physics (HL preferred) should be 5 for all programs, except 6 for Aerospace.
We consider complete applications year round and we give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines. Late applications will be considered if places are still availablefor the fall term only.
Electrical Engineering alumni have established careers in a range of fields, including aerospace, avionics and robotics, telecommunications, image and video processing, digital security, and power electronics and systems. Some have been hired by:
