    Course Summary

    Engineers seek to make the world a better place by taking ideas and scientific principles and turning them into the kind of products, processes and materials tat people can use in their everyday lives. They use physics, mathematics and other disciplines to solve technical problems and develop technologies.

     The University of Toronto’s Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) BSc degree program prepares you to take your place in one of the most rapidly developing technologies in the world, working to apply the latest advances in fields like photonic crystals, nanoelectronics, machine learning and more to create the robotic systems, biomedical implants and devices, renewable energy applications and super materials which could change the world – or save it.

    As an electrical engineer, you’d use your skills to design, create modify and apply electrical products, systems and manufacturing techniques in an almost unlimited range of contexts. As a computer engineer, you’d design control systems, create new software, an develop new networking technologies, and much more.

    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.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over 4 years of full time study.

    The first two will follow a common core curriculum which all ECE students will share. This will give you the background and skills you’ll need to select your fields of specialty in years 3 and 4. You’ll need to select 4 areas of interest and 2 more in which to focus in greater depth. Those areas are listed below.

    Focus Areas Include:

    • Biomedical Engineering – creating medical systems and biomedical devices
    • Mechatronics & Systems Control – creating embedded systems, robots and more
    • Software & Hardware Engineering – building and programming the computers of tomorrow
    • Energy Systems – creating power supplies and the electrical infrastructure of the world
    • Digital & Analog Electronics – designing microchips and semiconductor devices
    • Electromagnetics & RF Microwave – using electromagnetic waves to communicate
    • Photonics – creating new ways to detect, generate or manipulate light
    • Communications – transmitting data, processing signals and creating networks

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Toronto’s Learning and Teaching policy includes a range of initiatives and programs to foster best practices. These include the Teaching Stream Pedagogical Grant (TSPG),

    Undergraduate Course Development Fund (UCDF), First-Year Learning Communities (FLC), First-Year Seminars, Research Opportunity Program, Research Excursion Program and International Course Module Program (ICM). The coursework itself is delivered primarily through lectures and seminars, though there will also be frequent skills workshops and special events.

    Career Possibilities

    Graduating from the University of Toronto’s BSc program in Electrical and Computer Engineering will qualify you for a wide range of careers. You might go on to study at the MSc or even PhD level, or you might go directly into the workforce.

    Many engineering graduates take up roles in areas like solar and renewable energy, robotics, nanoengineering, photonics, nanoelectronics, software engineering, biomedical engineering or business. More specialised options include software engineering, control system design and communications engineering.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a university preparatory program at a senior secondary school, or the international equivalent. Great weight will be given to the GPA earned by your final year. 

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