Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is a driving engine of economic growth. From soaring skyscrapers and breathtaking bridges to innovative transportation systems and next-generation clean-water technologies — the scope and impact of Civil Engineering is unparalleled. Whether it is designing roads, bridges and tunnels or protecting people by creating earthquake-proof buildings, civil engineers have a wide variety of skills that make the world safer and more efficient.

Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering forms the basis of the modern world. Self-driving cars, robotics, mobile devices, electronic commerce, wireless communications and other advances are all built by computer engineers. Computer engineers gain deep knowledge about hardware and software design, and they are uniquely qualified to work on computer systems involving these aspects. They design and implement solutions to an ever-increasing range of engineering problems.

Computer Science

Computer Science blends theoretical knowledge and practical skills to explore intriguing topics — computer systems that mimic human vision or the design of pharmaceutical drugs. Explore the theoretical limitations of computing and learn about the methodologies that lead to efficient, accurate computation. Liberal arts or science courses complement your Computer Science study in the BA or BSc program. The iBA, iBSc or the dual-degree option add an international component to your learning.

Computer Security

Computer Security is a specialized area of computer science that studies threats to computer systems and networks, and develops the science and practice of how to mitigate them. As much of our lives today takes place in cyberspace, we depend on safe, threat-free computers. Computer Security specialists help improve safety for online interactions and protect our data from virus attacks.

Digital Media

Hone your creative, technical and analytical skills at the dynamic convergence of computational technology and the arts. In this innovative program, offered collaboratively by the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design and the Lassonde School of Engineering, code and programming are your tools for creative expression. Choose from streams in Game Arts, Digital Media Arts and Digital Media Development. Learn to create experiences and develop original objects such as apps, games, immersive, mixed and 3D reality environments, data visualization, interactive performance and more as you prepare for your career in the vanguard of digital culture.

Earth & Atmospheric Science

Specialize in one of these streams: Atmospheric Science, Geomatics Science or Space Science. Atmospheric Science explores meteorology from the turbulent micro-scale to the large synoptic-scale weather systems. Geomatics Science delivers the knowledge and skills to work with terrestrial, aerial and space-observing platforms. Space Science explores the near-Earth space environment, as well as other planets.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering focuses on the big concepts and in-depth knowledge of power electronics, signal processors, assistive medical devices and more. From creating air-traffic control systems to making our skies less crowded to designing safer power stations or medical devices, electrical engineers find that their skills have diverse real-world applications.

Engineering & International Development Studies

Are you passionate about using the power of engineering to solve challenges on an international stage? Explore our five-year  BEng/BA dual-degree in Engineering & International Development Studies.

Geomatics Engineering

Geomatics Engineering blends the knowledge of science and engineering with information technologies to solve complex, real-world problems. The diverse issues tackled by the field range from tracking a vehicle’s location within a city to determining land use from a satellite image. Geomatics engineers focus on the science and technologies related to positioning and navigation, sensors, measurements and mapping, as well as on spatial awareness and intelligence.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and most wide-ranging of the engineering disciplines and considered a cornerstone for any engineering faculty. The multidimensional discipline includes exploring sources of renewable energy, developing new tools for medical diagnostics and devising ways to create a cleaner and healthier environment. Mechanical engineers have a broad range of technical skills, equipping them with the knowledge to complete diverse engineering tasks.

Software Engineering

Software is used to control many aspects of the modern world, ranging from medical devices, nuclear power plants and airlines to Google and Amazon. Software Engineering is valuable when  developing prosthetic limbs to improve mobility or when writing the code for the next breakthrough in mobile communications. Software engineers make complex systems possible, safe and reliable.

Space Engineering

New frontiers offer new challenges. Space Engineering tackles these challenges by combining unique technical skills to design solutions to Earth’s problems using space-based assets while utilizing the principles of systems engineering. These solutions require knowledge of all engineering disciplines, combined with the knowledge of unique space environments — both in orbit and on other planets.
