  • Objectives
    This three-year advanced diploma program prepares graduates for career paths in the electrical, communications, manufacturing, electrical utilities, and protection fields. Students acquire basic fundamentals during the first two levels. During the third and fourth levels, students develop the skills required by many of the more sophisticated areas of these industries. Levels five and six prepare the student for the design of equipment, processes or systems, to interpret and prepare specifications, technical drawings or instructions; prepare estimates and manage projects. This is reinforced by the requirement to complete a design or analysis project under the guidance of a faculty advisor. The program includes core courses in electrical principles, codes, circuitry, control systems, computer applications and machinery. Students also study telecommunications, electronics, instrumentation, and robotics. Students are required to take general education courses in most levels.
  • Entry requirements
    This program will appeal to students who enjoy the challenge of solving problems. The problems range from how to connect and troubleshoot circuits, to the analysis, synthesis and design of electrical and electronic systems. Students are taught to apply practical experience, knowledge, mathematics and computer skills, find and evaluate solutions. The program includes a strong practical component. Lectures typically introduce a new area of study and are immediately followed by practical experiments to further strengthen the knowledge base.
