Computer Engineering (BEng)

Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)

Why study Computer Engineering?

Without computer hardware and software, there would be no smart phones, DVD players, digital recorders and critical systems in airplane cockpits, modern cars, or computerized medical devices. As a computer engineer, your knowledge of computer architecture, digital electronics, circuits and digital communication will lead to innovations or bring about another information revolution.

Choose the Avionics and Embedded Systems Option or create your own path based on electives that suit your interests. Our state-of-the-art labs designed for programming in assembly language, digital systems and high-performance computing will give you experience with the tools you will use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Learn programming methodology to design data structures and algorithms
  • Learn to resolve issues of system interfaces and integration
  • Integrate engineering solutions into biomedical and biological systems
  • Design Internet of Things (IoT)/cyber-physical systems to solve real world problems
  • Design embedded computing and communication systems for high-performance applications, such as a small, unmanned aircraft

All of our Engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.


Program details

The Bachelor of Engineering in Computer 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 Computer 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.

In the third year of study, students may choose from four options:

  • Biological and Biomedical Engineering (BME)
  • Pervasive Computing
  • A general stream with more credits chosen from the Computer Engineering electives list

Learn more about these options and see full degree requirements.
