O que eu aprenderei?

Today’s electrical field is extremely broad and diverse. Employers need motivated people who have the knowledge and skills to design, implement and maintain power generation, distribution and control systems, entertainment and communication systems, and process, automation and manufacturing systems.

The Electrical Engineering Technician Program will provide students with the theoretical and practical skills required to meet these demanding job opportunities. Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Technician Program will have a well-rounded practical and theoretical knowledge of many aspects of the electrical field.

Some areas of study will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Canadian Electrical Code usage and application
  • Reading and creating blueprints, schematics and wiring diagrams
  • Residential, commercial and industrial wiring
  • Industrial process measurement, calibration and control
  • Power electronics with application to power and motor speed control equipment
  • Industrial automation systems with programmable logic controllers and motor control equipment
  • Power generation and distribution equipment
  • Fire alarm, security and communication systems
  • Statistical analysis and sampling for quality control
  • Business communication, management and financial skills


Exemption Opportunities

At the completion of the program graduates may apply to write exemption tests to provide exemption from the in-school portion of the Ontario Electrical Apprenticeships. These tests are administered by the College and are free of charge to all graduates of the Electrical Technician program.

Career Opportunities

Electrical Engineering Technician: Whether designing a factory or a small piece of consumer equipment, Electrical Engineering Technicians are actively involved in absolutely every part of our modern society. They work closely with engineering and architectural staff towards the common goal of designing the devices and structures that make our everyday lives easier.

Industrial Electrician: In today’s automated manufacturing facilities, employers demand well-educated and highly skilled employees to maintain plant operations and improve productivity levels. Certified industrial electricians, in cooperation with engineers, industrial millwrights, operators and quality control technicians, are key to filling this demand. Graduates of this program will acquire the foundational skills that enable companies to succeed in this evolving and challenging environment.

Construction and Maintenance Electrician: The construction industry is diverse. Since a construction site can be anything from a residential home to a nuclear generating station – each with their own service types and installation practices – construction electricians are equipped to handle this diversity in a highly skilled and professional manner. Working in coordination with engineering and other trades, a construction electrician is capable of dealing with all aspects of electrical installation from start to finish.
