In the Electronics Engineering Technology program, you will learn the theory and practical skills needed to design and troubleshoot circuits, and to install, operate, and service electronic or data communications systems. You will take courses in electrical circuits, electronic fabrication, transmission theory and programming fundamentals for electronic systems. You will also complete a 240-hour on the job placement.
Students complete a major project involving an electronic system of their choosing. The project includes designing the hardware and software, building a prototype, and testing. Recent projects include a robotic arm wirelessly controlled via Bluetooth, a 3D imaging system to automate creation of models for 3D printing, radio frequency identification tags to automatically unlock and open doors and a Wi-Fi based water detection alarm with text messaging.
As a graduate, you will receive advanced standing toward the Aerospace Telecommunication and Information Systems program offered by the Canadian Forces. You are also eligible to receive a salary, benefits, and support to offset tuition and materials if you enroll through the Canadian Forces Non-Commissioned Member Subsidized Education plan.
