Our Program

Humber’s Electrical Engineering Technology – Control Systems advanced diploma program blends in-class, academic learning with hands-on laboratory work to prepare you for a career in electrical power and control systems engineering.

In the third year of this program, you’ll learn advanced skills for a thorough academic and practical approach to the control of electrical equipment and industrial process instrumentation in automated manufacturing, processing, power systems and utilities industries.

Our curriculum, designed in collaboration with industry, focuses on programming software, feed-back control system and motor control, instrumentation and programmable logic controllers (PLCs), power electronics, power generation, transmission and distribution, power system design, human machine interface (HMI) design and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). Superior mathematics, physics and critical thinking skills will be essential to your success.

The program builds upon the solid technical foundation of our technician program, ensuring wider career options. The skills learned in the technical program are enhanced through project-based learning and increased hands-on practice in the labs.

Your Career

According to Service Canada, the number of electrical and electronics engineer technologists and technicians is expected to increase significantly over the next few years. Those who have a postsecondary education will account for 81.4 per cent of those employed in the industry.

Engineering Canada forecasts the need for electrical engineers will increase as the economy improves. Our graduates find work as technologists who design, maintain, service or sell automated industrial, electrical machines, electrical control, power systems, power distribution protection and control, and process instrumentation systems and equipment.

Humber graduates have found employment in organizations that include ABB Inc., Aztec Electrical Supply, Canada Bread, City of Brampton, Street Lighting Department, Eastern Power Limited, Enersource Hydro Mississauga, Siemens Building Technologies Inc., Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

The Electrical Engineering Technology – Control Systems program has met national technology accreditation requirements as defined by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) and has received national accreditation status by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB).

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes the Electrical Engineering Technology program as meeting the academic requirements for certification in the technologist category. Graduates must apply to OACETT to become a registered member. After the application is received, OACETT will begin the process of awarding the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) status.

Work Placement

Our program features an optional, preferably paid work placement directly related to your program of study.
