Electrical Engineering students learn topics including physics, electric circuits, analog and digital electronics, electric and magnetic fields, communications, signal processing and controls. Students can take advanced courses related to systems and controls, nanotechnology and Microsystems, biomedical engineering materials and electromechanics.
Optional Specializations in Electrical Engineering:
- Biomedical Engineering
Courses in this option range from anatomy, physiology, biomedical instrumentation, bio-signals and systems, medical imaging, regulatory standards, design processes, to the emerging areas of micro and nanotechnology.
- Electrical Energy Systems Engineering
Emphasizes control, protection and reliable operation of power grids, electromechanical actuators, electric propulsion, electrical power systems of `vehicles, aircraft and ships as well as industrial and manufacturing processes requiring electric energy.
- Nanotechnology and Microsystems Engineering
Focuses on next generation electronics where chips integrate mechanical, fluidic, biological and optical components, and where nanometer scale features are forcing changes in the design of transistors and other basic circuit elements.
Electrical Engineering students are also available from UBC Okanagan.
