Of all the various disciplines, perhaps no other branch of engineering can claim to have such an impact on modern society as Electrical and Computer Engineering. The ease, speed and precision by which electrical energy and electrical signals can be transmitted, transformed and controlled has significantly enhanced the quality of peoples' lives.

Over the short span of only a few decades, Electrical and Computer Engineering has grown from a study of abstract phenomena to a multi-branch discipline with significant applications in the areas of power systems, communication systems, control systems, computers and electronics, robotics, instrumentation, electrical machines, active and switched-capacitor networks, cardiovascular dynamics, medical instrumentation, bioelectromagnetics, ultrasonic telemetry, design of integrated circuits, microprocessor-based systems.

This rapid growth, coupled with major advances in technology and material science, has made the field very dynamic and these changes pose exciting challenges to today's students, educators and practicing electrical and computer engineers. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers three graduate programs (MEng, MASc and PhD) in Electrical Engineering.
