Bachelors 2016/2017 in Windsor Canada. As an electrical engineer, you will design communications systems, electrical power grids, circuits, electric motors, electronic sensors, and many more of the technologies and applications that are so important to society today.
Provides experience with some of the fastest-changing and exciting technologies that shape our world
Involves the development and upgrading of electrical systems—the products, processes and energy systems on which our modern society depends
Includes specialized subjects such as microelectronics, computer engineering, robotics, communications, power generation and distribution
Electrical Engineering encompasses a large number of exciting and diverse areas of study. Areas such as: electronics, computer systems and networks; communications; energy systems; computer-aided design; control systems, robotics and multimedia are only a few of the directions that Electrical Engineering students can choose after graduation. The program of study includes co-operative work terms for qualified students that are designed to enhance the knowledge and professionalism of the student.
The program of study encompasses courses outside Electrical Engineering and provides a professional education sufficiently fundamental in nature so as to allow the student to choose his or her specific area of professional specialization after graduation. This philosophy of education recognizes that the professional responsibilities of graduate engineers evolve throughout their careers. Student may select courses from the list of electives during the fourth year so as to meet their needs more effectively.
Graduates of this program are able to engage, from the outset of their career, in decision making with a much broader perspective than is possible when excessive specialization at the undergraduate level is permitted. The program of study also provides excellent preparation for those students who may wish to continue their formal education with graduate study and research.
Students must participate in a fourth-year team-based capstone design project that develops leadership skills and professionally maturity. Students are encouraged to participate in seminars and in other professional development activities as organized by the Department, as well as off-campus professional activities. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has an active student chapter on campus which includes a Women in Engineering AffinityGroup (WIE).
Note: The baccalaureate degree program in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
A Rigorous, Enriching Program
After first year, you will take courses in numerical programming, circuit analysis, digital design, electromagnetic fields and photons, signals, and physical electronics.
Third- and fourth-year courses include microprocessors, analog communications, intelligent computing, power electronics, computer networks and security, wireless communications, and digital computer architecture. In fourth year, you can select technical electives that focus on Communications, Computer Engineering, Electronics, or a cross between various areas
What You Will Take First Year
All engineering programs begin with a general first year providing students flexibility in program choice. In your first year, you will learn and explore subjects important to engineering, including:
Forces, motion and movement
Electricity and magnetism
Mathematics and its applications
Design and graphical communications
Chemical and material interactions
Professional issues in the engineering disciplines
Thermodynamics, fluids and heat transfer
All Engineering streams require a minimum 74% average from the top six high school courses, as well as an average of 74% between MHF4U, SCH4U, and SPH4U. MCV4U is strongly recommended.
A First-class Facility
Our new, $112-million Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation (CEI) rivals the technical sophistication of any postsecondary institution in Canada. The CEI was constructed to meet the highest environmental standards and to provide learning opportunities throughout the facility.

*** Students opting for the Integrated BASc/MASc program:
The Faculty of Engineering offers a Bachelor's/Master's Integrated Engineering Degree program which allows students with outstanding academic ability to achieve both a B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degree in a time period as short as five years. This program treats the educational process through the B.A.Sc. to the M.A.Sc. degree as a single coherent integrated whole, while ensuring that the requirements for both degrees are fully satisfied. This structured program represents a complementary alternative to the existing separate undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
Application to the Integrated B.A.Sc./M.A.Sc. can be made early in the Winter semester of the student's third year of undergraduate B.A.Sc. study. Normally, only applicants who have a cumulative average of at least 77%, and a semester average of 77% in the Fall semester of their third year of undergraduate B.A.Sc. study may be granted admission to the integrated program which confers conditional admission status to the M.A.Sc. program.
