The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Lassonde School of Engineering, 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 63 research faculty and over 200 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 (M.Sc.) in Computer Science (including a non-thesis, project-based specialization in Artificial Intelligence), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as well as Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) 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 students.
Our Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science also runs, jointly with the Department of Computational Arts, a Graduate Program in Digital Media, offering studies leading to the degrees of Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Digital Media. The program provides the opportunity to do specialised hybrid research work uniquely combining computational science and artistic practices. Work in digital media focuses on a broad range of current and emerging forms of digitally supported media, with applications that range from computer games to interactive art.
Our complement of 63 graduate faculty members provides Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Software Engineering research and graduate training expertise.
