Stand out from the crowd as a job-ready electrical engineering graduate.

Program Overview

Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate

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.

Specialize in Energy or Mechatronics

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.

Meet employers and gain real-world experience

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.

Learn modern technology from industry experts

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 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 Credentials earned during the period of consent remain valid, even if Ministry consent to offer the program is withdrawn in the future.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).

Program Summary


Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Sheridan’s Electrical Engineering degree?

Sheridan’s BEng in Electrical Engineering offers the following advantages:

  1. Small classes (typically with 48 students in lecture and 24 students in lab).
  2. Tuition fees are competitive.
  3. One mandatory four-month internship and one optional engineering co-op work placement of up to 16 months.
  4. Students work on projects throughout the four years until they graduate, teaching them how to solve real-world problems.
  5. More hands-on experience working on real-world applied research/industry projects, coupled with solid math, science and engineering fundamentals.
  6. Professors with strong credentials and industry experience who are actively involved in applied research.

Will the school find co-op and internship opportunities for me?

The Co-op Office will help you find and secure a position. They do this through:

  1. An online job board of positions that you can apply and compete for.
  2. One-on-one supports and services including résumé critiques, mock interviews, cover letter reviews and job search strategy discussions.
  3. A seven-week Internship Preparatory course that helps you develop your job search skills.

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.

How do I qualify for co-op and internship?

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.

I'm a graduate from a three-year advanced diploma in engineering technology. How do I join this degree program without starting from first term?

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.

I already have a degree in another field of engineering. How do I apply to your program? Are you going to give me credit for some of the courses I took at university?

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.

Is Sheridan’s Electrical Engineering degree program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of Engineers Canada?

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.

How is a Bachelor of Engineering degree different than a Bachelor of Technology degree?

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.

Program Summary


Educational philosophy

Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design curriculum and its delivery are designed to address current social issues pertinent to the design industry. This enables students to broaden their understanding of their place within the world.

Fundamental to the vision of the program is the balance of creative and conceptual thinking with the technical and business aspects of the profession. Courses follow a logical sequence with the degree of difficulty building vertically from first year to fourth year.

The various streams provide a range of design problems building in size and scope, from simple to complex in various design sectors. The curriculum builds on fundamental introductions that ensures a strong foundation for students to apply additional more complex learning and skills developed later in the program.

Studio projects are designed to mimic professional practice and require applied theory, creativity and strong technical knowledge. Curriculum is also connected horizontally across each semester to help support the learning in courses happening simultaneously. This demonstrates the inter-connected knowledge and skills required to practice in the industry.

The program provides many opportunities that expose students to practicing professionals and professional practice. Industry leaders and representatives from professional associations like ARIDO and IDC are invited into the classroom as jurors and guest speakers throughout the four years. The internship also provides professional design work experience for students before they enter their final year of study.

The curriculum is student-centric and designed to equip students with the skills that are required for entry-level design positions and advanced study. Manual skills such as drafting, drawing and model making are developed alongside digital skills using current software. Students are also well-versed in the applicable building codes and regulations required to practice in Ontario. Students are exposed to valuable research skills and encouraged to continue their learning past graduation.

Program goals

Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program aspires to:

  • Develop confident, creative and critical thinkers that can solve a variety of problems thoughtfully, improving the quality of the built environment and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
  • Equip students with the tools to think independently and ethically to ensure technically, environmentally, and socially responsible decision-making.
  • Deliver current and relevant curriculum that incorporates equity, diversity and inclusion. This encourages students to create spaces that foster inclusivity and look at design from various perspectives within diverse communities, involving numerous stakeholders.
  • Inform students regarding the various facets of the profession, engaging them with designers and industry affiliates.
  • Encourage continuous professional and personal growth, instilling a desire to contribute to the profession and society at large. The program encourages students to become active participants in the design community, become members of their local Association, write their NCIDQ exams, give back to the community and become progressive leaders in the profession.
  • Prepare graduates for entry-level design positions, equipped with the required knowledge and skills for employment in the diverse design industry, ensuring they possess the body of knowledge necessary to respond to social and environmental issues, while designing interior spaces that are technically proficient, code-compliant, conceptually strong, sustainable and all-inclusive.
  • Provide enhanced opportunities for students to pursue post-graduate studies, employment, research and/or further their academic studies and/or credentials.
