Prospective Students

Undergraduate Studies

As the top-ranked electrical and computer engineering program in Canada, we are positioned to offer students state-of-the-art facilities, a faculty with extensive research and scholarly activity, and a flexible curriculum with a wide range of courses. In 2020-21, we had upwards of:

  • 1,450 students
  • 300 undergraduate degrees conferred
  • 70% of students in the Professional
  • Experience Year Co-op Program
  • A student-to-faculty ratio of 15:1
  • 33% women students

Graduate Studies

Our graduate programs — Master of Engineering (MEng), Master of Applied Science (MASc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) — introduce students to cutting-edge knowledge, guided by our world-renowned faculty. Students go on to careers in many fields, not only in engineering and academia but also in business, medicine, law and others. In 2020-21, we had upwards of:

  • 28 NSERC and CIHR graduate student award recipients
  • 15 spinoffs formed from ECE research over the past 5 years
  • $31 million in research operating funding
  • 9 of 10 ECE invention disclosures that included a student inventor

Professor Deepa Kundur has served as the ECE Chair since 2019

An award-winning researcher and teacher, she prioritizes innovation, industry and alumni collaboration, and aims to provide an inclusive student experience. A former ECE student herself — for all three of her degrees — she is dedicated to fostering the growth and empowerment of the next generation of electrical and computer engineering leaders for the betterment of society.
