Electrical Engineering (134 credits)

Offered by: Electrical & Computer Engr     Degree: Bachelor of Engineering

Program Requirements

Program credit weight: 134-139 credits

Program credit weight for Quebec CEGEP students: 109-114 credits

This program gives students a broad understanding of the key principles that are responsible for the extraordinary advances in the technology of computers, micro-electronics, automation and robotics, telecommunications, and power systems. These areas are critical to the development of our industries and, more generally, to our economy. A graduate of this program is exposed to all basic elements of electrical engineering and can function in any of our client industries. This breadth is what distinguishes an engineer from, for example, a computer scientist or physicist.

In addition to technical complementary courses, students in the Electrical Engineering program take general complementary courses in social sciences, administrative studies, and humanities. These courses allow students to develop specific interests in areas such as psychology, economics, management, or political science.

Required Year 0 (Freshman) Courses

25 credits

Generally, students admitted to Engineering from Quebec CEGEPs are granted transfer credit for these Year 0 (Freshman) courses and enter a 109- to 114-credit program.

For information on transfer credit for French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate exams, Advanced Placement exams, Advanced Levels, and Science Placement Exams, see http://www.mcgill.ca/engineering/current-students/undergraduate/new-stud... and select your term of admission.
