Is It for You?

Electrical engineers shape the technology that powers our world – from computer systems to electronic devices and power transmission systems. You’ll use your knowledge of engineering principles and practices to design, develop and implement electrical circuit relationships, electronic devices, integrated circuits, microprocessors, computers and control systems. Apply your skills with an optional paid co-operative internship, an optional specialization in Management Sciences and leading-edge research projects. In your final year, you can further specialize in Digital Hardware Design, Communication Systems, Signal Processing, Control Systems or Power Systems.
