Description:

Electrical engineers are involved in almost every facet of our high-tech world. They explore and develop new and innovative technologies through the research and manipulation of electrical phenomena. Electrical engineering reaches every corner of our lives, which means the techniques and skills you’ll gain will be directly applicable to a wide range of real world work environments. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur in class, during tutorials, and through working on an advanced-level project in specialized research-and-design courses.



This fully accredited program features a common first year, which consists of 10 courses in mathematics, sciences, computing, engineering principles, communications and design. These courses will provide you with a solid foundation for your engineering training and introduce you to a variety of engineering disciplines. You'll apply for admission to a specific engineering program at the end of your first year.
