Why Study Electronic Systems Engineering at the University of Regina?

U of R teaches a systems approach that solves engineering problems via more holistic thinking. This bachelor degree in electronic engineering gives you several ways to tailor your educational experience to your needs and goals, including your choice of electives, the chance to do research and opportunities to study abroad.

I had the opportunity to learn in-depth technical theory on a range of topics, while obtaining hands-on experience with electrical components and equipment through our labs. The professors were extremely knowledgeable and personable. They were available to help and truly wanted you to succeed in your studies and future endeavors. I have made lifelong friends and mentors from my time at the University of Regina.

As part of my studies, I participated in the co-op program. This program helped jump start my career and provided me with practical experience in the field in which I am currently employed. Through the co-op program, I was also fortunate to be able to work at multiple companies throughout Canada in varying industries. This helped me decide what I wanted to do when I completed my degree.

Electronic Systems Engineering Frequently Asked Questions

Is the electronic systems engineering degree accredited?

Yes! The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) carries out the degree program accreditation process under the umbrella of Engineers Canada, the national engineering licensing body.

Essentially, accredited engineering programs go through the process to validate educational quality. This ensures engineering degree graduates meet requirements to become licensed engineering professionals.

Once you graduate from an accredited program, you become eligible to register with a provincial licensing body as an engineer-in-training. You must pass the Association of Professional Engineers & Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) professional practice exam.
What electronic systems engineering scholarships are available?

The University of Regina gives engineering students access to more than 30 scholarships, bursaries, and awards! Each scholarship requires its own unique qualifications; however, some scholarships do not require an application at all. You’re simply eligible by being an engineering student.
