Year Two

Interested in electrical or computer engineering? You can now complete your second year at TRU. You will study circuit analysis and digital electronics, design and test microcontroller circuits, learn to control various mechanical systems, and complete a major design project. Your second year will be hands on. You will spend many hours each week in the lab designing, assembling and testing your projects, most of the time working as part of team.

Following your second year, you will take part in a required four- to-eight-month co-op term(s). Working for a manufacturing company, high-tech firm, a large corporation, or perhaps a small consulting firm, you will have the opportunity to hone your engineering skills, and get paid for it. And then you will transfer to the University of Victoria in third year to complete your degree.
