About Program Admission Requirements

Electrical Engineering focuses on the big concepts and in-depth knowledge of all that makes the field: power electronics, signal processors, assistive medical devices and more. From creating air traffic control systems to make our skies less crowded to designing safer power stations or medical devices, electrical engineering has diverse real-world applications.

What You'll Learn 

We will first teach you about the big concepts that make up electrical engineering. You will gain in-depth knowledge as you learn about designing a whole slew of power electronics, signal processors and medical/assistive devices in your upper years.

Your theoretical knowledge will be balanced with hands on experience. If you geek out over gadgets, just wait until you get into our Robotics Lab. You will have access to our Digital Logic Lab and the Multimedia Lab.

After second year, you can take part in the co-op program. This will help you fine-tune your skills and gain some great professional experience.

Some Courses You'll Take

  • Power Electronics
  • Electric Circuits and Devices
  • Digital Logic Design
  • Embedded Systems
  • Integrated Circuit Design
  • Communication Networks Project
  • Introduction to Power Systems
  • Medical Devices

You are required to provide official evidence of academic achievement in secondary education. This can be demonstrated through:

  • Final grades under the Ontario curriculum (obtained through correspondence, night school or through TVO)
  • Credentials through other curricula, such as results from Advanced Placement (AP) or Advanced-level courses in the General Certificate of Education (GCE). (Students may register to sit for the AP and GCE examinations as private candidates.)

In the absence of final grades in courses:

  • You must submit the results of standardized tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) with a minimum combined total of 1170 on the Critical Reading and Math components or a composite American College Testing (ACT) score of 24.
  • Your application will be reviewed by an admissions sub-committee. If admitted, you will not be eligible for entrance scholarships. You will be considered for continuing student scholarships at the end of your first year of study, if you satisfy those criteria.

You may also be required to provide proof of language proficiency. You will be considered for entrance scholarships on the basis of your overall averages in the six 4U/4M (Ontario curriculum) or equivalent courses.
