Description: Combine expertise in software and hardware with applications in fields ranging from financial to environmental to automotive. Students learn digital electronics and computer architecture, moving up to operating systems, intelligent systems, and software engineering. Computer Engineering is an option in the Engineering Science program in the Faculty of Applied Sciences. Computer and Electronics Design is available as a minor. This program leads to a bachelor of applied science degree with a computer engineering option. Engineering science students develop skills in systems design with a high level of scientific knowledge. This demanding program is aimed at the superior student. The program produces well educated, innovative engineer/scientists with entrepreneurial skills and attitudes who are oriented to new technologies. Program entry is competitive.

Students undertake a basic core of pure, applied and engineering sciences followed by studies in a specialized option. The general BASc program may be completed in eight academic terms plus a minimum of three co-op terms. ENSC courses emphasize learning, conceptualization, design and analysis. Built into the program are courses on social impacts of technology, finance, management, design methods and entrepreneurship intended to complement scientific studies. A special, integrated communications course completed throughout the program ensures that all graduates have the communication skills necessary to be effective engineers. The dynamic, on-going development and application of computer and digital systems requires computer systems engineers to have a balanced capability in software and hardware, and a solid engineering base.
