• Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering
  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering with Professional Internship

Electrical Engineering is a broad discipline that spans from the physical world to the purely information-based world. Electrical Engineers are the minds that develop electronic circuits, semiconductor lasers, microprocessors, electric motors, communications networks, robotic systems, medical instruments, avionics, and more. In this dynamic area of study, you will learn the skills needed to succeed as an electrical engineer.

What You'll Learn

In this program, you will study electric circuits and motors, electromagnetics, microelectronics, signal processing, communications, robotics and control, mechatronics, digital logic, and microprocessors. You will build on a base of applied mathematics and physics and learn to use the laws of physics that govern electrical systems to design new products and services.


Apply your learning

As an Electrical Engineering student, you will have opportunities to take part in lab work and design projects that have real-world applications. In your fourth year, you will have the opportunity to take a project-based course to propose, design, build, test, and present a viable project that produces a tangible result. Every year, our students produce inventive and creative Capstone design projects.

Our ECE students have a wealth of internship opportunities, and we have a consistently high rate of students on internships. Queen’s ECE also offers an accelerated master’s program for upper-year students to get a head-start on their master’s degree.
