Electrical Engineering Program Profile

Last Updated : Oct 24, 2018

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

From modern telecommunication systems to renewable power generation or medical devices, electrical engineers develop skills that are in-demand in diverse industries.

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 assistive medical 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.
