    Course Summary

    A BEng degree in Electrical Engineering from Carleton University will prepare you for either an advanced degree at the MEng level or higher, or for an exciting ‘hands on’ career designing the electrical control and power systems which will help build the future.

    You’ll have several specialisations to choose from, including:

    • Wireless electronics
    • Nanotechnology
    • Light-wave devices
    • Integrated circuit design and fabrication
    • Green energy
    • Design automation
    • Biomedical sensors and technologies
    • Antennas
    • Aerospace electronics

    Co-operative or experiential studies are a particularly popular choice for Engineering students. Getting this kind of real world working experience in your chosen specialty or industry will not only help you prove to employers that you have what it takes to be a great new hire, it will help you begin networking with those already working in your field. The fact that you will also earn a pay check is an important added bonus!

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Carleton University’s degree programs are delivered using fairly standard learning and teaching methods, though by way of superior personnel. These will typically include large scale lectures, smaller and more interactive seminars and skills tutorials, as well as laboratory, internship and co-op experience. These teaching methods have been selected to help students gain a deep understanding of the field and its place in society, as well as to engage the minds of the students.

    Career Possibilities

    Depending on how you specialise your degree, you could qualify for many different careers. Of course, you’ll have the option of continuing your schooling at the MEng level, but many go directly into the workforce with their BEng degree.

    Those students wishing to go directly into work often go into technically-oriented fields like Software Design, Satellite Communications, Network Technology, Fibre Optic Communications,

    Computing Hardware Development, Communications Technology, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering or Biomedicine.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a BEng degree.

     To apply, you’ll need to have completed high school or the equivalent secondary education. The school has different (but equivalent) admissions standards for Canadian High School graduates, American High School graduates, Home Schooled applicants and other international students.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise specified, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
