Academic Calendar 2023-2024

Electrical Engineering, B.A.Sc. (Class of 2026)

Elective courses in years three and four are to be chosen from Electives Lists A and B, and by consulting suggested Streams and prerequisite paths. Your complete degree program must:

  1. Exceed the minimum Accreditation Units (AU) set by ECE in each CEAB category.
  2. Have at least 5 courses from Electives List A.
  3. Have at least 5 four-hundred level elective courses.
  4. Counting required core courses and elective courses in all four years, result in a total of no fewer than 157.5 credits for the complete program.

Available combinations of elective courses are subject to timetabling constraints.

Electrical Engineering: Electives

Course Prerequisites

Normally, registration in a course offered by the ECE Department is allowed provided a mark of at least D- has been achieved in each of the prerequisites for the course. Students having one course prerequisite (numbered 200 or higher) with a mark of FR may still be able to register in a course offered by the Department provided their Engineering Cumulative GPA is at least 2.0 at the end of the previous session. Prerequisites are listed under the calendar description for each course.

Complementary Studies

Refer to the Complementary Studies section of this calendar for details regarding the requirements for all Engineering plans. For the Electrical Engineering Program, the Engineering Economics course is APSC 221 Economic And Business Practice. Communications units are included within the design courses ELEC 290 Electrical and Computer Engineering Design and Practice, ELEC 390 Principles of Design and Development, and ELEC 490 Electrical Engineering Project.
