Program Information

School:University of Alberta
Faculty:Faculty of Engineering
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering
Description:The Electrical Engineering program at the University of Alberta prepares you for this rapidly evolving field by giving you a sound foundation of knowledge which you will continue to build on throughout your degree. You will gain hands-on experience working on electrical devices and systems that transmit, distribute, store, control and use electromagnetic energy or electrically coded information.

This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate! Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.
