Our Program

Emphasis in Humber’s Electronics Engineering Technician diploma program is placed on electronic products, control systems and telecommunications which are all built on a strong basis of computer and networking engineering. You’ll spend approximately 50 per cent of your time in labs developing your hands-on knowledge of electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits. Industry leaders will teach you about computer programming and interfacing, local area networks, radio frequency circuits, basic programmable logic controllers, industrial electronics, wired and wireless telephones, and troubleshooting techniques. You’ll be taught how to embed these circuits into cell phones, audio and high-definition (HD) video systems, robots, computers, and advanced instruments.

You’ll also build and test circuit boards, learn soldering techniques and program industrial controllers and embedded systems in our state-of-the-art labs.

Several of our students have won awards at Skills Ontario and Skills Canada competitions.

This is a two-year program leading to the technician diploma in electronics. Also, this program shares curriculum with the first two years of a three-year program in Electronics Engineering Technology (see advanced diploma, program 03511). Many students who complete these two years and graduate as technicians continue on for one more year to the advanced diploma and become technologists.

Your Career

According to the Electro-Federation Canada, companies that design, install, manufacture, distribute, and service electrical, electronic and telecommunications products contribute more than $50 billion to the Canadian economy while employing more than 130,000 workers at 1,400 facilities in Canada.

Our graduates have found employment with major users of large electronics systems, such as broadcasting networks (including CBC, CTV), telecommunication carriers (including Rogers, Telus, Bell), manufacturers of electronics equipment (including Creation Technologies, Celestica, and GE Canada), and manufacturers of scientific, medical and industrial instrumentation. Other graduates have started their own businesses or progressed to positions such as company representatives, technical salespeople and managers.

Your Future Study Options

Upon completion of this program, graduates can pursue an Electronics Engineering Technology diploma by taking the third year of Electronics Engineering Technology program 03511. The Electronics Engineering Technology program is nationally recognized through its accreditation by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) at the engineering technologist level. Graduates are eligible for registration in the Ontario Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT). Graduates of the technology program may be qualified to work anywhere in Canada and in several countries around the world.

Qualified graduates of this program may be eligible to apply their academic credits toward further study at many postsecondary institutions. Visit Transfer Options for detailed information.
