The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) program framed according to Indigenous worldview and application aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the principles and practices of electrical engineering while incorporating Indigenous perspectives and ways of knowing. The program recognizes the importance of Indigenous knowledge and seeks to integrate this knowledge into the curriculum to foster a deeper appreciation for the relationship between technology and the environment, community, and culture.

The program will cover the fundamentals of electrical engineering, including Sustainable & Renewable Energy, power systems, nuclear engineering, and control systems, but will also emphasize the application of this knowledge to Indigenous communities. Students will have the opportunity to work on projects that focus on energy production and distribution, renewable energy, and sustainable development. Throughout the program, students will engage with Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing, which will be integrated into the curriculum through readings, discussions, and experiential learning opportunities. This will include learning from Indigenous experts, community members, and Elders to gain a deeper understanding of how technology can be developed and applied in a way that is respectful and sustainable.

Graduates of the program will be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to work as electrical engineers in a range of industries, but will also have a unique perspective and understanding of how technology can be developed and applied in a way that is respectful of Indigenous culture and the environment. They will be well-positioned to work on projects that address the needs of Indigenous communities, particularly those related to energy production and distribution. Overall, the MSEE program framed according to Indigenous worldview and application provides a unique opportunity for students to gain a deeper understanding of electrical engineering while incorporating Indigenous perspectives and ways of knowing. It prepares

graduates to be leaders in their field who can make meaningful contributions to Indigenous communities and work towards a more sustainable future for all.
