Employers have asked for graduates who are versatile, innovative, and ready to hit the ground running in an evolving industry. For this reason, B.Tech. students learn in three dimensions – they study engineering theory and business principles in lectures, practice hands-on skills in labs, and obtain industry experience through co-op work terms.

The program is made up of technical courses that are specialized according to your chosen stream. In addition, an eight-course management studies component is designed to develop business skills in a technology context. A five- course “breadth of learning” component will broaden your knowledge of economic, social, political, environmental, cultural, and ethical dimensions of work and society. These courses also focus on communication, problem solving, analytical thinking, and interpersonal skills. Finally, a twelve month co-op component is integrated throughout your studies.
