What is electrical engineering?

Behind just about every advance in information, power, and energy, you’ll find an electrical engineer – from designing power stations and aircraft control systems, to developing essential medical equipment.

As a student in electrical engineering you will learn fundamental skills in electronics, circuit analysis and electromagnetics. You will be able to apply those skills to areas such as:

  • communication,
  • manufacturing,
  • power and energy,
  • health care,
  • computing,
  • security,
  • entertainment, and many others.

A Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Electrical Engineering will lead to hundreds of career paths, and take you places you never imagined. The possibilities are endless.
