Electrical Engineering (BEng)

Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)

Why study Electrical Engineering?

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 

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 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.

In the third year of study, students may choose to take one of five elective options:

  • Electronics/VLSI
  • Telecommunications
  • Power and Renewable Energy
  • Avionics and Control
  • A general stream with more credits chosen from the Electrical Engineering electives list
