Electrical engineers play a role in the design of all products and systems that use electricity, including the radios, televisions, cellular phones, computers, and other consumer electronics that surround us. Electrical engineers also design and build devices and systems for industry: everything from ultrasound machines, artificial limbs, and elevator dispatching systems to weather radars, electrical power grids, and the thousands of other electrical systems that we take for granted as part of our everyday lives.
École de technologie supérieure
Concentration: Embedded Systems for Aerospace
This concentration targets the study of real-time systems on embedded platforms, as well as the dedicated avionics systems (electrical, computer and mechanical) inside an aircraft. Upon completion of their training, students will be able to perform a functional analysis of an airplane’s various systems, to design an aircraft’s systems architecture, and to analyze engineering plans taking into account objectives in terms of deliverables, safety, current aeronautics standards and systems integration processes.
This program offers a 4-year (8-session) full-time course of study, starting with the Fall or Winter session. Students wishing to pursue part-time study are encouraged to speak with the faculty contact person.
– At least one four-month paid compulsory internship.
– An integrative project each year and a large-scale final project, for 6 credits, providing graduates with a solid background in engineering design.
– Specialty courses starting the first year,
– Emphasized mentoring from the start of studies.
– Credited training aimed at mastery of verbal/written communication and teamwork.
– A mechanism for ongoing quality management of the program.
– Multiple opportunities to study abroad.
This program has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) and provides access to the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec for all our programs.
Université de Sherbrooke
The bachelor’s program in electrical engineering allows for two courses of study:
– a course of study with specialization modules in any one of the following six blocks: microelectronics and bioengineering, automation and robotics, advanced telecommunications, artificial intelligence and robotics, energy and automatic control engineering, and electrical power;
– a course of study with modules in more than one block.
Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières
The electrical engineering program at UQTR has been around since the founding of the University in 1969 and is renowned both at home and abroad. With its 120-credit format, the program can normally be completed in four years. Its diverse and comprehensive content, based on North American standards, provides access to a fascinating career in modern industry.
The program in Electrical Engineering gives students a broad understanding of the key principles that are responsible for the extraordinary advances in the technology of computers, micro-electronics, automation and robotics, telecommunications and power systems. These areas are critical to the development of our industries and, more generally, to our economy. A graduate of this program is exposed to all basic elements of electrical engineering and can function in any of our client industries.
