UVic Electrical Engineering
The UVic Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) was established on July 1 1983 as part of the Faculty of Engineering which was also founded at the same time. There are distinct advantages to the relative newness of the Faculty: experienced academics have been recruited from around the world, laboratory facilities contain some of the latest and most sophisticated equipment available and the curriculum has been developed to take the lead in 21st century technologies.
ECE offers two accredited undergraduate programs, B.Eng. in Electrical Engineering and B.Eng. in Computer Engineering. ECE also offers graduate programs leading to M.A.Sc., M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees. The first class of undergraduate students received their B.Eng. degrees in 1988 and the first graduate student received a M.A.Sc. in 1985.
At present, ECE has thirty-three regular and emeritus faculty members, twelve full-time and part-time staff members and over five hundred undergraduate and graduate students.
