Thank you for your interest in our graduate programs. ECE graduate programs commence in September and January only.

ECE will begin accepting applications for programs commencing in September 2022 and January 2023 on the SGS Application System on October 15, 2021. All ECE programs require the submission of both an SGS application and an ECE application; the ECE Application System will begin accepting applications on October 22, 2021.

Please carefully review ECE's minimum admission requirements, application instructions, and frequently asked questions prior to commencing an application.

The University of Toronto, the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, and the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are committed to increasing diversity within our community. Excellence flourishes in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people.

The deadlines for both domestic and international applicants to fully complete both SGS & ECE applications, including two references, are:

  • MASc & PhD programs:  January 6, 2022
  • MEng program
    • Round 1:  March 15, 2022
    • *New* Round 2:  May 31, 2022

Important Notes

  • These deadlines apply to all applicants who wish to commence their program in September 2022 or January 2023.
  • The ECE Application System will email an applicant’s referees to request references only after the applicant has submitted their application. As an application is not complete until both references have been submitted, it is highly recommended that applicants (1) submit their applications well in advance of the deadline and (2) confirm that their references have been submitted by the deadline.
  • The University of Toronto will be completely closed from December 22, 2021, through January 2, 2022, for the Winter Break. Accordingly, applicants who require assistance before the January 6 deadline should contact the ECE Graduate Office no later than December 17, 2021.

Graduate Research Days 2022

On February 24 and 25, the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering and the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will virtually host select applicants for Graduate Research Days 2022. This online event will showcase the outstanding graduate education and research opportunities offered by the Faculty and the Department. Activities will include keynote addresses, a graduate student research showcase (three-minute thesis style), alumni speakers, research lectures, student panels, and a virtual tour of the campus. Applicants must fully complete an application to the MASc or PhD program by the January 6 deadline to be considered for an invitation.
