If you call a friend, flip a light switch, play a video game or drive a car, you are touching the work of an electrical engineer. Electrical engineers impact almost every aspect of our lives. They make essential medical equipment, design wireless communications networks, predict earthquakes, and invent new ways to generate and conserve energy. Electrical engineers will be leaders in meeting global challenges in energy, health, communication and safety.

As a student in UBC’s Electrical Engineering program, you will learn essential skills in electronics, circuit analysis and electromagnetics. After your first year, you might decide to customize your program by taking specialized courses in nanotechnology, biomedical engineering or renewable energy. Whatever options you choose, you will have the opportunity to work on real-world engineering problems throughout your program.
