Why study Computer Engineering? (Co-operative)
Computer engineers play a key role in designing, constructing, and integrating the technology that continues to change our lives every day. Our Computer Engineering program provides you with a broad background in the theory and application of hardware and software technologies. As a result, graduates are qualified for positions ranging from traditional computer engineering positions (e.g. software designer, computer systems designer) to positions often associated with electrical engineering (e.g. electronics circuit designer).
This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate!
Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.
As part of this program, you can choose to take a Software Option (Co-op only) or a Nanoscale System Design Option.
