As you work towards your bachelor of engineering (BEng) degree, you will have the opportunity to conduct applied research with our industrial and government partners, and participate in an optional paid co-operative internship. You will also have the option to enroll in a two-year specialized structural engineering option, or choose between the environmental or transportation streams in fourth year.

All of this plus student competitions, an optional specialization in management sciences, and leading-edge facilities will leave you well-equipped to make an impact on society. The civil engineering BEng degree program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

Computer

Behind every digital phenomenon is a computer engineer. They make the world around us more efficient, bring communities together, improve digital security, democratize commerce and enhance entertainment through technologies such as virtual reality. And with processes becoming increasingly intelligent every day, the demand for skilled computer engineers follows. As a student of this discipline, you’ll develop a versatile set of skills: designing and building computers, mapping networks, programming software, developing firmware and interfacing computers with the outside world.

While completing your Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree, you’ll begin by learning to apply physical sciences and mathematics to engineering principles. In third year, you’ll focus on advanced subjects such as computer architecture and software systems, preparing you for valuable, paid work experience in an optional co-operative internship program. You’ll also have the opportunity to focus on coding and software design with an option in software engineering. In your fourth and final year, you’ll further specialize in network and systems design while also collaborating with peers on a large-scale design project.

Graduates of the program leave Toronto Metropolitan University prepared for careers as electronics engineers, IT consultants, software developers, systems analysts, network engineers, and more.

The computer engineering (BEng) degree program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).

Electrical

At the centre of all technological advances is electrical engineering. As a student of this discipline, you’ll learn to apply the fundamentals of physical sciences and mathematics to practical applications of electric circuits, power electronics, control systems, data structures, digital communications and medical technologies.

While completing your Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree, you will develop algorithms, as well as design, simulate and build prototypes. In third year, you’ll gain specialized knowledge in advanced subjects such as communication systems, electromagnetics, microcomputer systems, electrical devices and systems, and control theory. At this stage, you can gain valuable, paid work experience in an optional co-operative internship program. In your fourth and final year, you’ll further specialize in your field of interest and collaborate with peers on a large-scale design project, leaving you well-equipped to launch your career and lead the charge in the next generation of technology.
