The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers graduate courses and research opportunities in three programs of study. The Master of Applied Science and Doctor of Philosophy are research-based degree programs and require the completion of a thesis. The Master of Engineering is a course-based degree program and may be taken on a full-time or part-time basis.

The MASc program provides students with an opportunity to pursue advanced studies in the particular field of major interest and an opportunity to engage in research. The program requires full-time study for a minimum of one year, coursework, and a thesis on a research project.​

The MEng program is designed to provide professional training beyond the undergraduate level and to accelerate careers with specialized engineering expertise needed in business, government, and industry. The degree requirements, consisting of courses and an optional MEng project, are structured to be completed in one year by a full-time student.

The PhD program is designed for those exceptional individuals who intend to pursue a career in fundamental or applied research. The program requires coursework and the successful completion of a research thesis.

The department offers research in the following areas:

  1. Biomedical Engineering

  2. Communications

  3. Computer Engineering

  4. Electromagnetics
