Computer Engineering - BEng

Is it for you?

Computer engineers influence the way we work and play in our technology-driven, interconnected world. You’ll use scientific and practical knowledge in digital circuit technology to build electronic systems and devices that benefit lives. Create hardware, firmware, software and interfacing systems that let computers communicate with each other and the world.

Enhance your skills with an opportunity to enrol in a paid co-op program, software engineering option, optional specializations in Management Sciences and Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and leading-edge research projects. The fourth-year curriculum culminates in a hands-on capstone design project and also allows you to specialize in a variety of subject areas through an extensive electives list.

Student spotlight

"Computer Engineers distinguish themselves with their versatile set of skills: they can design and build computers, interface them with the outside world and make them talk to each other, develop firmware and also create system-level and user/application-level software."
