Program Information

School:The University of British Columbia - Vancouver
Faculty:Faculty of Applied Science (Engineering)
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering
Description:Electrical engineers impact myriad aspects of our lives. They make essential medical equipment, design wireless communications networks, and invent new ways to generate and conserve energy. Learn essential skills in electronics, circuit analysis, and electromagnetics, and after your first year, customize your program by taking specialized courses in nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, or renewable energy.

Electrical Engineering consists of three eight-month academic sessions either following first year Engineering or following a transfer program from first year Science. The second year is common to both Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. Some undergraduate curriculum changes will emphasize laboratory work and engineering design, without detracting from the program’s strong analytical base. You can select one of the following options: Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology & Microsystems, or Electrical Energy Systems, as well as a Minor in Honours Mathematics.
