About the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

About the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers undergraduate degree programs in Electrical Engineering, Electrical Engineering (Honours), Computer Engineering, and Software Engineering. All programs provide students with a strong background in mathematics, basic sciences, engineering science, engineering design, and complementary studies, in conformity with the requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).

In addition to technical complementary courses, students in all three programs take general complementary courses in humanities and social sciences and/or management studies and law. These courses allow students to develop specific interests in areas such as psychology, economics, management, or political science.
