Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering)

Stand out from the crowd as a job-ready electrical engineering graduate.

Learn how to conceive, design, implement and operate electrical devices and systems through a balance of theory and hands-on experience.

Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate

Theory is important, but so is the opportunity to put it into practice. Because our electrical engineering degree is one of the few in Canada that embrace the CDIO Initiative (Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate), you’ll spend up to 50% of your class time working in labs. By using the systems you build, you'll learn what it takes to imagine and develop user-friendly solutions.

Specialize in Energy or Mechatronics

In the third and fourth years of your electrical engineering courses, you'll have the opportunity to specialize in one of two technical streams — energy or mechatronics. Our energy stream prepares you for work in the electrical utility sector. In the mechatronics stream, you'll gain the skills necessary to work in the fields of automation and instrumentation.

Meet employers and gain real-world experience

Build working relationships with potential employers while you're still in school! Our program features a four-month electrical engineering internship after your second year, plus the option for a co-op work term of up to 16 months following your third year. These experiences, combined with cross-disciplinary projects in each year of your studies, ready you to work as soon as you graduate.

Learn modern technology from industry experts

As one of our newest programs, Sheridan's electrical engineering degree features cutting-edge curriculum and the latest technology. You'll work in small classroom environments with expert professors who hold PhDs, have P.Eng (professional engineering) designation and have years of industry experience.
