[AED] Applied Electronics Design Overview

Program Description 

The AED program is a career-focused supplement to your existing post-secondary education or relevant work experience in electronics or engineering technology.

In it you’ll learn the fundamental design and product development concepts necessary for participants to enhance their understanding of product design, or facilitate a transition from one area of engineering technology to another. Your courses will also help deepen your understanding of both analog and digital engineering principles as applied in modern product engineering technology.

Focusing on the application of Wireless Communications, your studies will also include treatment of the following design fundamentals: Electro Mechanical, Printed Circuit Board (PCB), Applications Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC), Statistics and Quality Management, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Advanced Real Time Microprocessors, Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and Safety Certification and Approvals.

You'll use industry-standard software and hardware tools to learn current industry design methodology, help foster an awareness of Seneca in the industrial community through its effective use, and gain important skills in the use of Electronics Design Automation (EDA) tools such as Mentor Graphics and Cadence, which have become industry standards. This knowledge and experience will help you graduate as a job-ready professional.

Your career

Give yourself a career advantage - earn a graduate certificate in Applied Electronics Design. As a graduate of this program you'll be prepared for entry-level roles in support of product design and development teams, product verification and validation, printed circuit board design and development, support of ASIC development, electronics manufacturing engineering support and testing. Although your studies will focus on Wireless Communications, the design techniques you'll learn are fundamental to a wide range of electronics industries.
