ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING
Program Regulations and Information
Electrical Engineering encompasses a large number of exciting and diverse areas of study. Areas such as: electronics, computer systems and networks; communications; energy systems; computer-aided design; control systems, robotics and multimedia are only a few of the directions that Electrical Engineering students can choose after graduation. The program of study includes co-operative work terms for qualified students that are designed to enhance the knowledge and professionalism of the student.
The program of study encompasses courses outside Electrical Engineering and provides a professional education sufficiently fundamental in nature so as to allow the student to choose his or her specific area of professional specialization after graduation. This philosophy of education recognizes that the professional responsibilities of graduate engineers evolve throughout their careers. Student may select from the list of approved courses from within Engineering during the fourth year so as to meet their needs more effectively.
Graduates of this program are able to engage, from the outset of their career, in decision making with a much broader perspective than is possible when excessive specialization at the undergraduate level is permitted. The program of study also provides excellent preparation for those students who may wish to continue their formal education with graduate study and research.
Students must participate in a fourth-year team-based capstone design project that develops leadership skills and professionally maturity. Students are encouraged to participate in seminars and in other professional development activities as organized by the Department, as well as off-campus professional activities. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has an active student chapter on campus which includes a Women in Engineering AffinityGroup (WIE).
Note: The baccalaureate degree program in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
