Credential Awarded:Ontario College Advanced Diploma

Program Description

Your studies will encompass a broad background in analog & digital electronics, software development, modern communications and control systems.

You'll benefit from a thorough investigation of such areas as electronic circuitry, diagnostic techniques, microcontrollers, process control and computer systems/ networks. During the final year of the program, you'll focus on applying the principles you've learned to the design and testing of electronics projects. In addition, you'll study advanced topics in areas such as digital communications, control systems or programming to specialize in an area of interest to you.

The hallmark of this program is its blend of theory and practice. The theory not only gives depth to your understanding, it also prepares you for future advancement, both professional and academic. The practice done in our impressively equipped labs, gives you hands-on skills that employers in the electronics industry need.

Common First Year

In the School of Information and Communications Technology, all electronics and engineering diploma programs (ECT, EEN, EET) have the first two semesters in common, facilitating easy transfer between program before second year.

Admission Requirements

Program Eligibility:

  • Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent with:
    • Grade 12 English: ENG4(C) or ENG4(U)
    • Grade 12 Mathematics: (C) or (U) or Grade 11 Mathematics: MCR3(U)
  • OR Mature Student Status (age 19 or older) with the above prerequisite course(s), their equivalent(s) or appropriate Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) Certificate program credits (see Academic Upgrading).

Your Career

Almost everything we use today relies on electronics, and that makes qualified technologists essential. Complete your advanced diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology and you'll be prepared for a career as an Electronics Technologist in a wide range of fields involving the design, maintenance, servicing, testing, installation or sales of electronic equipment and systems. Your diploma is evidence that you posess the comprehensive skill set that will enable you to find work in a variety of industry sectors. Through your choice of options, you can give yourself a competitive advantage to get the job you want by specializing in specific areas, such as telecommunications or industrial automation.

Professional Certification

The Electronics Engineering Technician program has been designed to meet national technology accreditation requirements as mandated by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT), the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) and the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

Recognition as a Certified Engineering Technologist

The Electronics Engineering Technician program has been designed to meet the academic requirements set by The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) for certification in the Technician category. Application and additional requirements (i.e. work experience and qualifying professional practice exam, etc.) to become certified are available from OACETT.

Affiliations/Associations

  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) Pending
  • York Technology Association (YTA)
  • Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC)
  • Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA)

Co-operative Education Option

In your third semester you'll be eligible to apply for co-op, a valuable opportunity to gain meaningful work experience with our industry partners. Employers are committed to providing you with relevant work assignments. Upon graduation you have acquired up to 12 months of paid employment experience with spending only four to eight months longer to achieve your diploma. You must achieve and maintain above average academic standards for acceptance and progession in co-op

Students in the co-op option will also take Co-op Professional Theory in their first co-op work-term and Co-op Professional Practice in the semester following their first co-op work-term. Students must successfully complete these two courses and at least two co-op work-terms to graduate from the co-op option.
