Why Be an Electrical or Computer Engineer?

No other undergraduate degree offers students the opportunity to work in as many fields as electrical and computer engineering (ECE). With one degree you can work in aerospace engineering, the biomedical field, finance and banking, the communications sector, the computer industry, and the energy sector. This is just the short list. Our graduates also go into law, medicine, teaching, research and start their own companies.

Electrical and computer engineering is at the heart of most current technological breakthroughs. Any device with an energy or IT component is derived from ECE knowledge. From providing accurate medical diagnoses at a distance to exploring distant planets, ECE plays a crucial role.

Engineers also have the knowledge and skills to make the world a better place. They can help solve critical problems like pollution, the energy crisis and the spread of contagious diseases.

ECE at U of T is unique in allowing students to specialize in the areas they choose. ECE is a degree where students can follow the path of their interests to the career of their choice.
