Program Vocational Learning Outcomes

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
OSSD with the majority of courses at the College (C), University (U), University/College (M) or Open (O) level plus:
  • Grade 12 Math (C) or (U)
  • Senior Level Physics (C) or (U)
Mature students - See Admission Procedures for details.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Electronic engineering technologists assist in the design, programming, manufacture, and operation of electrical/electronic control systems. They “design” and “troubleshoot” systems to ensure efficient process operations and perform system programming functions. Students will gain skills and knowledge across multiple aspects of industrial automation including fundamental electrical analysis, industrial wiring, motor control, and automation principles. Students will also learn to design automation and systems that are safe to operate, eliminate repetitive operator work, in order to manufacture quality products. This program will appeal to students with a strong background in the physical sciences and math. Students should be highly motivated problem solvers with good communication and interpersonal skills.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
  • Small class sizes and a hands-on learning environment provides a blend of theoretical and hands-on learning experiences.
  • Graduates are highly sought-after by employers from our local automation industries.
  • Labs usually accommodate one student per work-station.
  • Transfer agreements with related engineering programs at a variety of universities.
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Electronics Engineering Technologists, specifically specialists in the field of industrial automation and controls, are in high demand. Manufacturing and technology companies are increasingly investing in automation and robotics to be competitive in the global market place, pointing to a continuing demand in this field. Our graduates are needed to design, program and support these automation systems. In addition, the program offers diverse opportunities as control designers, control specialists, process planners, programmers and product designers, with manufacturers and users of electrical and electronic equipment.
