About the Program

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) is one of the leading academic and research departments in Canada. Our graduate programs are research based, thriving on the broad range of active research conducted by faculty members in the Department. Specializations include: Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Graphics, Computer Security, Computer Vision, Data Science, Human-Centered Computing, Information Systems, Integrated Circuits, Micro/Nanoelectronics, Networks, Power and Renewable Energy Systems, Robotics, Software Engineering, Theory of Computation and Virtual Reality. With 58 research faculty and over 150 graduate students and research staff our graduate programs foster a dynamic research environment.

The Graduate Program in EECS offers a research intensive, well supported, congenial environment for a select group of graduate students. We offer studies leading to the degrees of Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science (including a non-thesis, project-based specialization in Artificial Intelligence), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as well as Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Electrical and Computer Engineering. These degree programs consist of courses and research conducted under faculty member supervision. Our internship program offers a combination of industrial and academic experience for student.
