Overview

The B.Eng Electrical Engineering program shares first year with the Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) to provide you with options for your engineering education. After successful completion of the first year, you choose to continue in either an engineering degree or a technology diploma path. The engineering degree path requires an additional three years of study, however, you can choose to transfer to the diploma path and within one additional year you can graduate with an ECET diploma. 

The program offered by British Columbia Institute of Technology encompasses a wide range of subjects designed to advance both your technical knowledge and your skills in communications, management and professional practice. A four month workplace education experience allows you to apply your developing skills prior to graduation. (See program details page for more information). In a capstone project that spans the final year, you will apply your knowledge to a complex "real world" engineering design challenge.
