ECE Innovation Stream

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Innovation (ECEi) stream is an undergraduate program option for Electrical or Computer Engineering students who are interested in learning additional entrepreneurship and innovation skills.

ECEi is a direct-entry program: students who enrol in the innovation stream of Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering are guaranteed to get into the program of their choice, provided that they pass all of their first-year courses. The first-year program in the ECEI is composed of the same courses as for all other first-year engineering students. ECEi students can still enjoy the variety and the benefits of the common engineering first year and take courses across disciplines during their first year of study.


  • Beginning in first year, you will receive an enriched Electrical and Computer curriculum that builds on Queen’s Engineering’s common first year.
  • Participate in team-based learning that focuses on product development and prototype demonstration.
  • Network with like-minded students and promote your ideas.
  • Receive guidance and support on technical aspects, business models, as well as execution of your innovative ideas.
  • Tailor your education to match your interests and ambitions by selecting from a wide variety of courses.
  • Acquire skills that can be applied to almost any technical field – industrial or academic.
