Computer Engineering

The Computer Engineering program provides training in the software/hardware co-design of digital systems with an emphasis on embedded systems. The program shares courses with the Electrical Engineering Program that cover general electrical engineering, analog and digital electronics, signal processing, communications, and computers. Topics specific to Computer Engineering are studied in specialized focus areas in the third and fourth years.

All undergraduate students admitted to the College of Engineering are required to complete a common first-year of undeclared studies (known as the first-year common core). Once the first-year common core program has been completed, undergraduate students declare their preferences and compete for admission into an upper-year program. Students who are successful in securing admission into an upper-year program are required to follow the program of study that is prescribed at the time of their admission into the upper-year program.

Recognizing that course and program changes may result in a modification to the original program of study, it is recommended that undergraduate students consult an Academic Advisor within the Engineering Student Centre on a regular basis to confirm their program of study, choose courses (including electives), and monitor their academic progress.
