Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. Our Department offers three programs of study:
- Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Electrical)
- Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Computer)
- Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering (in conjunction with the faculty of Computer Science)
Our history at UNB extends back to 1907 when the first Electrical Engineering (EE) degree was awarded. EE became its own department in 1925 when it separated from the Physics Department. Computer Engineering (CMPE) was originally offered as an option of EE, but became a separate degree program in 1997 and the Bachelor of Software Engineering (SWSE) was introduced at UNB in September 2001.
EE is one of the most dynamic and pervasive fields of applied science, permeating virtually every aspect of daily lift from the electricity that lights our homes to high definition TV's, DVD's, personal computers, cellular phones and control electronics for our household appliances and automobiles.
CMPE is a fast changing, fast growing field in our modern world. Everywhere you go you can see evidence of computers integrated into objects we use daily (communication systems, appliances, vehicles). Our CMPE program provides a solid background in both hardware and software as well as analysis and design techniques to allow you to apply your knowledge to solve practical problems.
SWE is the newest field of applied science at UNB. This program is both challenging and rewarding. Early in the program you will focus on basic science, engineering and mathematics and later on in the program you will have opportunities to specialize in one or more fields within Software Engineering.
