Prospective Students and Admissions

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers undergraduate degree programs in three areas of study: Electrical Engineering (including honours), Computer Engineering and Software Engineering. All programs provide students with a strong background in mathematics, basic sciences, and engineering science and design.

Program Information and Curricula

Your degree requirements not only depend on your program of study and the year you were admitted, but they also depend on whether you were admitted from a CEGEP or High School background.  The links below will lead you to the sample curricula of your program, year, and background, as well as information regarding minors, elective courses, and complementary studies courses.

Curricula Changes and Updates

In Fall 2016, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering revised the curricula of each program. These updates affected the offering of some of the courses listed in the sample curricula prior to 2016. Students admitted prior to this term should consult the links below to determine how to satisfy any course(s) that have been phased out of their program.

IEPE & the Enhanced Power Concentration

Students in the Electrical Engineering program are eligible for the Enhanced Power Concentration. This concentration allows students to take and participate in industry-sponsored courses, projects, internships and new employment opportunities in electrical power engineering. Supported by the Institute for Electrical Power Engineering (IEPE), an initiative of Hydro-Québec, students will have access to state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, and a point of contact between industry and universities involved in power engineering.
