The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB). The program is committed to providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become competent and effective members of an electrical engineering team. Students will gain technical knowledge and skills in maintenance, troubleshooting and design of electrical power systems with a focus on utility, large industry, institutional and commercial facilities. Early program studies stress the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to complete installation, maintenance and troubleshooting tasks. Later studies provide the skills and knowledge tools necessary to undertake analysis and design tasks.
Students may exit after two years of study to achieve the Electrical Power Systems Technician two-year diploma.
The program shares a common first year with the Process Automation Engineering Technology three-year diploma program. Many second- and third-year courses are also shared, allowing for a reduced time to obtain a dual qualification.
