[EET] Electronics Engineering Technology Overview

Program Description

The Electronics Engineering Technology program, also known as EET, is a three years (six semesters) advanced diploma program. Your studies will encompass a broad background in analog & digital electronics, software development, modern communications and control systems.

You'll benefit from a thorough investigation of such areas as electronic circuitry, diagnostic techniques, microcontrollers, process control, and computer systems/networks. During the final year of the program, you'll focus on applying the principles you've learned to the design and testing of electronics projects.  In addition, you'll study advanced topics, in areas such as digital communications, control systems or programming, to specialize in an area of interest to you.

The hallmark of this program is its blend of theory and practice. The theory not only gives depth to your understanding, it also prepares you for future advancement, both professional and academic. The practice, done in our impressively equipped labs, gives you the hands-on skills that employers in the electronics industry need.

Co-operative Education Option

As early as second semester, you’ll be eligible to apply for co–op, a valuable opportunity to gain meaningful work experience with our industry partners. Employers are committed to providing you with relevant work assignments. Upon graduation, you may have acquired up to 12 months of paid employment experience while spending only four or eight months longer to achieve your diploma. You must achieve and maintain above average academic standards for acceptance and progression in co–op.

Students in the co–op option will also take CPP100 (Co–op Professional Practice) in the semester preceding their first co–op work–term, and CPP200 (Co–op Professional Practice) in the semester following their first co–op work–term. Students must successfully complete CPP100, CPP200 and at least two co–op work–terms to graduate from the co–op option. For more information, please go to www.senecacollege.ca/coop.

Your career

Almost everything we use today relies on electronics, and that makes qualified technologists essential. Complete your advanced diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology and you’ll be prepared for a career as an Electronics Technologist in a wide range of fields involving the design, maintenance, servicing, testing, installation or sales of electronic equipment and systems. Your diploma is evidence that you posess the comprehensive skill set that will enable you to find work in a variety of industry sectors. Through your choice of options, you can give yourself a competitive advantage to get the job you want by specializing in specific areas, such as telecommunications or industrial automation.
