The first two years of the programme provides students with a strong practical and theoretical foundation in: computing and programming languages, software, digital and analogue electronics, electrical science, and engineering mathematics.

Students will be advised and guided by a personal adviser towards their choice of degree option to be undertaken in the final two years of the programme. The option choices include: Computer Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Robotic Engineering, Electrical Energy Engineering and a General option which allows the students to select their own topics of interest from the other four options.

Work experience is integrated in year three through a positive and motivating thirty-week period of Cooperative Education.  It provides students with practical work experience in the field of their chosen speciality.

In the final year, students undertake a significant individual engineering project, aiming to solve a real world problem. The project involves advanced design, implementation experience, and builds confidence by putting into practice the skills and techniques acquired throughout the course.
