Earn a career-focused degree in: 

*NEW* Bachelor of Engineering, Cyber Systems Engineering

Prepare yourself for careers in the emerging field of communications infrastructure engineering (CIE). As our society becomes increasingly dependent on the public internet and communication networks, a growing demand for Cyber System Engineers who can design, manage, and protect interconnected digital infrastructures and systems has emerged. As a Cyber Systems Engineering student, you will learn about CIE systems and applications that uphold mission-critical and safety-critical objectives such as privacy, security, governance, and confidentiality. This program is delivered using a unique project-based curriculum model that allows you to apply theory to increasingly complex, hands-on projects each academic semester. This project work, combined with sixteen months of paid co-op opportunities, is strategically integrated into the curriculum to enhance students’ skills and job readiness. Applications are currently being accepted for the first cohort starting August 2022.  

Bachelor of Engineering, Power Systems Engineering

Prepare yourself for career opportunities in the evolving electrical power sector by learning about power systems engineering, trans-disciplinary engineering of renewable energy generation, smart grid, energy conservation technologies and so much more. pace

Bachelor of Engineering, Mechanical Systems Engineering

Through increasingly complex projects, you will progress from the technical fundamentals of mechanical, industrial, and control engineering to the design, manufacturing, and automation of advanced leading technologies.  

Bachelor of Engineering, Electronic Systems Engineering

You’ll explore the evolving world of software, cutting-edge control, communication, sensing technology, and comprehensive electronic systems design through 15 increasingly complex real-world projects.

Bachelor of Engineering, Building Systems Engineering

Unique in Canada, this program explores modern building technology and operational systems. You’ll learn how to design, optimize, and efficiently integrate building systems, such as lighting, energy, heating, etc., into both new and older buildings.


Expanding Degree Opportunities 

Conestoga’s degree offerings are expanding across the college to provide you with greater choice and better alignment with your academic and career goals.  Offerings currently under development include a new degree in sustainable design engineering and a new joining and welding major within the existing mechanical systems engineering program.  Conestoga’s commitment to career-ready skills and project-based learning will ensure you are prepared to meet the evolving needs of the industry. 


Apply Theory to Practice Through Project-Based Work

Project-based and work-integrated learning is core to all of Conestoga’s degrees. Realistic projects, simulations, paid co-op placements, applied research, case studies, and capstones empower you to apply theory to practice and develop the practical, hands-on skills that employers are searching for. For this reason, the School of Engineering & Technology has a history of excellent graduate and co-op placement rates.  


Bring Learning to Life

You can expect to benefit from smaller class sizes at Conestoga, in comparison to many degree programs.  Smaller class sizes create more natural opportunities to form professional networks and friendships, engage in meaningful teamwork, and collaborate with and learn from your peers and teachers. Your credentialed faculty will also bring learning to life as they share their industry experience and connect lessons to the real world of work.  


Access State-of-the-art Facilities

Conestoga’s School of Engineering & Technology is based at a state-of-the-art facility, conveniently located off the 401. The Cambridge Campus features labs, shops, and classrooms that are outfitted with technology to augment your learning experience. Many of the shops and labs are made to simulate industry environments so that you can practice and gain confidence with industrial equipment, materials, and protocols. Check out a virtual tour of Cambridge Campus and see for yourself.
