Computer Engineering

“Computer Engineering combines theoretical foundations in physical and computer science with the system, software and hardware engineering concepts needed to develop reliable and effective computer-based devices and systems. Computer Engineers design, build, test, and manage all forms of computer systems.” Read more.

Electrical Engineering

“There isn’t a field or industry that doesn’t depend on the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering – be it pharmaceutical, medical, manufacturing, media or even entertainment. Subdisciplines of Electrical Engineering include electronics and nanoelectronics, control systems, telecommunications, robotics systems and biomedical instrument design. Combine the knowledge of these subdisciplines with your interests and a satisfying career will be yours.” Read more.

Geomatics Engineering

“Geomatics Engineering is the modern term used to describe the group of related disciplines which collect, analyze, manage and display a wide variety of geographic information, including digital imagery and satellite-based position coordinates. Geomatics Engineers use their knowledge of science, engineering and measurement technology to solve complex real world problems. Disciplines within Geomatics Engineering include geodesy, land surveying, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), photogrammetry and remote sensing, GPS, and hydrography. ” Read more.

Space Engineering

“Space engineering involves all aspects of conceiving, designing, constructing, launching and operating space vehicles. There are three components to any space mission: the launch vehicle, the spacecraft with its payload (which could be astronauts) and the ground communications system. To get all these elements working well together, a space engineer must have a background in areas such as orbital mechanics, computers and software, electrical power systems, wireless communications, structural design and rocket science in order to deliver and maintain the payload in the right orbit, to keep it operational, and to receive and transmit data to and from the spacecraft.” Read more.

Software Engineering

“York’s software engineering program is based on the major categories of software knowledge listed in the IEEE/ACM guidelines with special emphasis on mission-critical systems. Our program prepares you for a career in a rapidly changing field by emphasising fundamental design principles and ideas that are of lasting value. We stress methods and tools that combine industry best practice with our own research experience for the development of reliable software with the security guarantees increasingly required in modern applications such as medical devices, avionics and banking.” Read more.
