Mandatory: B.Eng students are required to do a work term between their 2nd and 3rd years. While B.Eng work terms share many similarities with co-op education work terms, because they are one twelve week work term, they are not accredited as co-op.

After successful completion of the first year of the Electrical and Computer Engineering diploma, students can choose to pursue the B.Eng Electrical Engineering.

This engineering degree path requires an additional three years of study and includes a mandatory summer work term after the completion of the second or third year.
