For the Fall 2021 semester, this program will be delivered through a hybrid model that combines remote and in-person learning. View details on delivery modes for all programs.
Theory is important, but so is the opportunity to put it into practice. Because our electrical engineering degree is one of the few in Canada that embrace the CDIO Initiative (Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate), you’ll spend up to 50% of your class time working in labs. By using the systems you build, you'll learn what it takes to imagine and develop user-friendly solutions.
In the third and fourth years of your electrical engineering courses, you'll have the opportunity to specialize in one of two technical streams — energy or mechatronics. Our energy stream prepares you for work in the electrical utility sector. In the mechatronics stream, you'll gain the skills necessary to work in the fields of automation and instrumentation.
Build working relationships with potential employers while you're still in school! Our program features a four-month electrical engineering internship after your second year, plus the option for a co-op work term of up to 16 months following your third year. These experiences, combined with cross-disciplinary projects in each year of your studies, ready you to work as soon as you graduate.
As one of our newest programs, Sheridan's electrical engineering degree features cutting-edge curriculum and the latest technology. You'll work in small classroom environments with expert professors who hold PhDs, have P.Eng (professional engineering) designation and have years of industry experience.

Sheridan is pleased to provide an Entrance Scholarship in the amount of $2,500 to select applicants in this degree program. View Sheridan Degree Entrance Scholarship details for eligibility criteria and more.
Sheridan has been granted a consent by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer this degree for a seven-year term starting April 29, 2019 and subject to renewal thereafter. Application to the Ministry for renewal of the consent is a prescribed and cyclical requirement for degree programs at all Ontario colleges. Sheridan will ensure that all students admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) program during the period of consent will have the opportunity to complete the program within a reasonable time frame. Credentials earned during the period of consent remain valid, even if Ministry consent to offer the program is withdrawn in the future. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs (e.g. acceptable to potential employers, professional licensing bodies, or other educational institutions).
As a graduate of Sheridan's electrical engineering degree program, you'll be prepared to perform electrical engineering work in the energy or automation sectors.
Fields you could potentially work in include:
Graduates of this program will be able to:

Sheridan’s BEng in Electrical Engineering offers the following advantages:
The Co-op Office will help you find and secure a position. They do this through:
In addition to the above, you are required to conduct your own independent job search. This includes researching companies of interest, attending networking events, making phone calls or sending emails and promoting yourself. Although Sheridan’s Co-op Office has a long, well-established history of success, securing a position is not guaranteed and will, like any course, require your commitment of time and effort in order to achieve a successful outcome.
You and all other students must complete the mandatory four-month internship to graduate. To be eligible, you must complete all of the courses from the first two years of the program and be in good academic standing. The engineering co-op work term after Year 3 is optional and students who are interested must apply.
Sheridan may put in place a maximum number of “seats” in the co-op program which would make entry into co-op a competitive process and take your GPA into consideration. As this is a new degree program, the co-op application process is still being developed and more information will be available in 2020.
If you have a recognized three-year advanced diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology or related programs from a recognized Ontario community college, we are currently considering pathway options that will require you to complete a number of reach-back courses from the Bachelor of Engineering degree program before joining either the second or third year. There will also be a minimum GPA requirement. You and all other students will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, depending on your academic background.
Pathways will be designed to ensure all students graduating from the program meet the requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Students applying for a pathway option will not be considered until September 2021, at the earliest. At this time, you may consider starting in Semester 1 for fall 2020.
Transfer students will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The equivalency of incoming courses will be assessed based on the Sheridan credit transfer policy and requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
Sheridan’s Electrical Engineering degree has been designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board’s (CEAB) requirements. New engineering programs can seek accreditation from the CEAB once they produce their first graduating class. That means Sheridan can seek accreditation for its Electrical Engineering degree program when its first cohort graduates in 2024.
At that point, the CEAB will review Sheridan’s self-evaluation of the program and conduct an on-campus evaluation of its own. Once Sheridan’s Electrical Engineering degree program receives accreditation from the CEAB, any students who graduated from the program that year or thereafter will be considered to have graduated from an accredited program.
In general, a Bachelor of Engineering degree is designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board requirements, and when the program is accredited, graduating students will have satisfied the academic requirements to apply for licensure as a Professional Engineer. On the other hand, a Bachelor of Technology degree program may not be designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board requirements.
As a result, graduates from this program may need to satisfy additional academic requirements such as the completion of technical examinations to become a licensed Professional Engineer. Further information can be found on the Professional Engineers Ontario website.
Date: Wednesday, May 26th, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
