Our Program

Humber’s advanced diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology consistently ranks among our most employable programs and has the highest job placement rate in Ontario among similar programs. This program builds on skills learned in the Electronics Engineering Technician diploma and will prepare you to work in all fields where electric circuits and systems are found.

You will acquire strong fundamental knowledge to help you build a career in all new and emerging technologies manufactured here in North America, like photonics, laser technology, medical imaging, new electronic materials and devices, intelligent systems, entertainment and broadcasting systems.

The program takes a system design and integration approach to electronic applications and you will gain in-depth knowledge and hands-on training in:
– microprocessors and microcontrollers
– interface design
– embedded systems
– signal acquisition and processing
– image processing including high-definition television (HDTV)
– telecommunication electronics, photonics, fibre optics
– antennas, waveguides and transmission lines
– control systems, both embedded and computer-based
– instrumentation.

We have designed the curriculum in collaboration with an advisory panel comprising highly successful industry experts in order to ensure you are learning the most up-to-date, relevant material. You will spend approximately 50 per cent of your time in labs, working with electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits and learning how to embed these circuits into cell phones, audio equipment, high-definition (HD) video systems, robots, computers and advanced instruments.

As a result of this dynamic environment, several of our students have gone on to win gold medals at Skills Ontario and Skills Canada competitions.

Your Career

Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) reports that 75 per cent of the new jobs created between 2009 and 2018 are in high-skill, high-tech occupations. This demand will only grow as technology continues to advance and change the way we live and work, especially in industrially dynamic regions such as the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Our graduates work at such major organizations as CTV and CBC, Ontario Power Generation, Hydro One and Toronto Hydro, Rogers, Telus and Bell, as well as BlackBerry, Celestica, and GE Canada, to mention just a few. They put the skills they acquired at Humber to work in research and development, where they build prototypes and test new devices. They are manufacturers’ representatives, technical salespeople, managers and entrepreneurs. They manufacture electronic systems and install, maintain and troubleshoot such systems through their lifecycle. Some of our graduates choose to strike out on their own and launch their own businesses.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

Application and additional requirements to become certified (i.e., work experience, professional practice exam, etc.), are available from The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

The Canadian Forces recognizes this program and eligible students can have their study sponsored by the forces.

Work Placement

Humber’s Electronics Engineering Technology program features an optional, preferably paid work placement directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation. The work placement occurs after the completion of semester four, and lasts for a minimum of 400 hours. Participating students are required to complete work preparation sessions prior to the work term in order to develop an industry-specific resumé and effective interviewing skills. We provide a range of services to support your success, including working with business, industry and government to identify employment opportunities.

Your Future Study Options

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.
