Electrical Engineering (Faculty of Engineering)

Can be taken as: Major, Honours

Electrical engineers create, design, build and operate the electrical systems that power homes, schools and businesses. They are also behind the technology used for cell phones, video games, automation and robotics.

Electrical engineers are creative thinkers who are good at math and physics and enjoy working with computers and in labs. They have strong communication skills that are useful since electrical engineers often work in teams with civil or mechanical engineers or architects.

Electrical Engineering 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. This knowledge can be used in many industries, including telecommunications, aerospace technologies, automotive industry, robotics, automation and control systems, microelectronics, energy, biomedicine or manufacturing and processing. They can also share their knowledge of electronic systems with people in the Canadian north or developing countries around the world.
