Electronics Engineering Technology


Advanced Diploma


Program Code: 03511

Campus: North

Length: 6 semesters starting in September

The demand for skilled technicians who understand how to work with the latest advances in electronic circuits and systems is growing, as our world becomes increasingly digitized. Building on the skills gained in the Electronics Engineering Technician program, this advanced program will give you the added knowledge to launch your career in research and development, manufacturing, sales and hands-on technical work. Graduates have found employment with major media and broadcast companies, technology firms, and power generation and distribution corporations using skills in:

  • electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits
  • photonics
  • laser technology
  • electronic materials and devices
  • intelligent systems
  • high-definition (HD) and traditional broadcasting systems
  • robotics
  • cellular technology

Through in-class labs and an optional co-op placement, you will acquire strong fundamental knowledge to help you build a career in new and emerging technologies that will make you an attractive candidate to potential employers.

Optional Co-op

This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.

For students who are accepted into the program, three co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 2 and 3, and then two consecutive four-month work terms between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply.  While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.
