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 orAvionics 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 Engineers Canada and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Particular attention is paid to grades in mathematics, sciences and courses applicable to the intended program of study. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements will be reviewed holistically.
Students will be required to take and complete all prerequisite program requirements during their first year of study.
Any missing prerequisites will be added onto the program at Concordia.
Applicants from a three-year technical DEC may be eligible for transfer credits based on course equivalencies.
Minimum of 65% for exemptions for Math and Physics. Students with grades of less than 65% in prerequisite courses will be asked to repeat those courses in addition to the program.
