Our professors come from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds, and are here to share their knowledge with you. Whether you’re looking for an explanation to a tough problem or a supervisor for an extracurricular project, you’ll find someone in the department with the patience and expertise to help you achieve your highest potential.

ECE graduates are in high demand from the public and private sectors. Through co-op work-experience terms, the department’s industry partners, and alumni, you’ll meet the right people to help kick-start your engineering career.
