Description: The Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (B.Eng Electrical) is a four year program that prepares students for a student in a lab professional career as an Electrical Engineer. The B.Eng Electrical is recognized as a baccalaureate degree in British Columbia by the BC Ministry of Advanced Education and is nationally accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). The program is designed to provide a pathway to registration as a Professional Engineer in BC.

The B.Eng Electrical program shares first year with the Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) to provide you with options for your engineering education. After successful completion of the first year, you choose to continue in either an engineering degree or a technology diploma path. The engineering degree path requires an additional three years of study, however, you can choose to transfer to the diploma path and within one additional year you can graduate with an ECET diploma.

Admission Requirements

Additional Admission Requirements:

    Students currently in the ECET diploma program do not need to apply through the Admissions department. These students select their preferred path with the program area in the second term of first year, and can select an ECET diploma option or the Engineering degree. Entry to the degree is competitive based on GPA. Students chosen for the degree path will be moved into the degree program. Students who are offered a seat in the BEng and choose to decline it will be required to compete for entry in a future term, if they still wish to pursue the program. That includes students who decline their seat to do a Co-op work term. Only applicants that have previously completed the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, Mechatronics and Robotics or Biomedical Engineering diplomas, or equivalent, are required to submit an application.
