After your degree
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:
All of our Engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.
The Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering takes a minimum of four to five years (120 – 150 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
All students accepted in the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering program who are not enrolled in the Co-op program must complete one 12-17-week internship to graduate. This internship program, C.Edge, is administered by the Institute of Co-operative Education and will allow ECE students to have one paid internship in their field of study.
The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will work for engineering firms where you may:
Students not enrolled in Co-op will complete a C.Edge internship as part of their degree requirements. This full-time paid internship lasts between 12-17 weeks, and enables students to:
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
Quebec residents who enroll in this program and meet the eligibility criteria may apply for funding of $2,500 per term through the Quebec Perspective Bursary (Bourse Perspective Quebec).
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
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:

Sarah Ben Rejeb discovered a passion for project management by trying different areas of specialization through her internships.
Being a student is difficult sometimes, but I love being at Concordia. People are so friendly and it’s so easy to make friends here.

Without computer hardware there would be no smart phones, DVD players and digital recorders or computerized medical devices. As a computer engineer, your knowledge of computer architecture, digital electronics, circuits and digital communication will lead to new innovations or bring about another information revolution.
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Build engines. Design robots. Control explosions. As a mechanical engineer, you will create, construct and control machines. Whether it’s a vehicle, an aircraft engine or an assembly line, mechanical engineers know how to fit that square peg into a round hole, and do it with a little finesse.
