The ECE department offers numerous resources for our undergraduate students to help them find success in their academic career. Students have many opportunities to tailor their education around personal interests, practice ideas for careers, and prepare for graduate school or the working world.
Students admitted as of Fall 2019 in the Electrical and Computer Engineering programs 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 either by Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI) or the Institute for Co-operative Education (Co-op), and will allow ECE students to have one paid internship in their field of study. To enroll in the C-Edge work term, students must successfully complete 60 credits. It should be noted that students must complete at least one work term before taking the Capstone Design Project Course, ELEC/COEN 490.
In order to fulfill the work term, students must successfully complete one of the courses managed through CIADI or the Co-op office. 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.
All 200-level courses within the program which are prerequisites for other courses must be completed with a C- or higher. A 200-level course in which a student has obtained a D+ or lower must be repeated before attempting a course for which it is a prerequisite
All students in engineering programs must complete all 200-level courses in their programs prior to commencing courses at the 400-level.
