Section 71.30.1 Course Requirements (BEng in Electrical Engineering)

Degree Requirements

The program in Electrical Engineering consists of the Engineering Core, the Electrical Engineering Core, and Electives. The minimum length of the program is 120 credits.

Students in the Electrical Engineering program are required to complete at least one work term administered by either the CIADI (Section 71.10.9 Concordia Institute for Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI)) or co-op (Section 71.10.8 Co-operative Education in the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science) offices. Only work terms undertaken after successfully completing 60 credits in the Electrical Engineering program would satisfy this requirement. In order to fulfill the work term, students must successfully complete one of the courses managed through CIADI or the Institute for Co-operative Education. It should be noted that ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to find an approved work-term placement.

For information on co-op fees, see concordia.ca/academics/co-op/students/fees.
