ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AT SCHULICH
Combining Conceptual Foundations and Outstanding Hands-on Instruction
Electrical engineering is an exciting field of study, which encompasses almost all walks of daily life in this "hi-tech" era.
Electrical engineering concepts are used extensively in telecommunication, space technology, information processing, and medical imaging. Electrical engineers have designed life support systems used in hospitals, personal communication devices, video and audio systems, micro sensors that sense car collisions and release airbags, solar panels used in space, and much more.
In the first year of the Electrical Engineering Program, students focus on math and the basic concepts of electronic devices, analog and digital circuits and systems, and computers. In the second year of the program, the concentration increases on electric power generation, digital and analog microelectronic circuits, digital system design, communication systems, and control systems. In the final year, students learn more about advanced topics such as digital communication, microwaves, power systems, and fibreoptics. The department offers a wide range of electives so that students may choose courses that match their interests. There are also courses for students to work on advanced-level projects under the guidance of a professor.
The University of Calgary's Electrical Engineering Program has expanded to meet industry needs. The new Information Communication Technology (ICT) building provides additional educational space and the most up-to-date educational equipment, providing graduates with an education that promises outstanding career opportunities.
