About this course

Most of the world's computers are embedded computers - computers that are hidden within cars, appliances, digital cameras, MP3 players, phones and other devices. Electrical and Computer engineering is concerned with the design and management of computer-based systems, including embedded systems and more conventional computers such as personal computers (PCs) and personal digital assistants (PDAs). Electrical and Computer engineers have skills and knowledge in digital logic design, computer networks, embedded and desktop operating systems, microcontroller selection and programming, electronics, telecommunications and signal processing.

This dual major prepares students to work in innovative environments, designing cutting-edge products for the information and communication industries. Strong emphasis is given to practical hands-on experience with high technology equipment. Team and individual projects are a strong focus of the program, an approach valued by employers.
