Electrical Engineering Program Profile

Last Updated : Dec 22, 2016

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Bachelor of Engineering 
+ Co-op (Optional) 
+ Dual Degree: BA Int'l Development Studies 

In Lassonde’s Electrical Engineering program, you will have the chance to train your hands and your mind.

We will first teach you about the big concepts that make up electrical engineering. You will gain in-depth knowledge as you learn about designing a whole slew of power electronics, signal processors and medical/assistive devices in your upper years. 

Your theoretical knowledge will be balanced with hands on experience. If you geek out over gadgets, just wait until you get into our Robotics Lab. You will have access to our Digital Logic Lab and the Multimedia Lab.

After second year, you can take part in the co-op program. This will help you fine-tune your skills and gain some great professional experience. 

TECHNICAL SKILLS YOU'LL GAIN 

​• Ability to apply theory learned in the classroom to course labs, projects and assignments as well as
  in extra-curicular competitions and student clubs
• A strong programming foundation
• Electronic fabrication, testing and measurement
• Rapid prototyping of electronic and mechatronic systems
• Embedded systems and digital logic design including sensor interfacing and actuation of
  electromechanical devices
• Digital signal processing using MATLAB modelling software
• Verilog circuit-modelling language for FPGA circuit programming
• Circuit design for chips, motors, small controllers or antennas
• Analysis, design and optimization of hardware and software
• Engineering design, prototyping and assembly skills through capstone project, with intro to
  business case plan development
• Opportunities to participate in courses offered by Osgoode Hall Law School (Intellectual Property
