Overview

Advanced Diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology (Optional Co-op)

Graduates from Electronics/Computer/Telecommunications Engineering Technician/Technology programs work with electronic, computer and communications equipment and systems. 

They are technical experts and problem solvers. 

Many of Conestoga's graduates report that they enjoy the creative aspects of the job and seeing projects come to life. 

The three programs have the same first year. 

Students may switch programs at the end of the first year if they desire. Graduates of the Computer Engineering Technology program are able to design, build, test and repair a computer-based system or any part of one. 

Their very strong electronics knowledge and skills enable them to take on many roles in the industry. 

Their strength in hardware, mathematics and theory equips them to interface with the physical world. Because of the power of embedded processor chips, they are used to simplify (and make less expensive) most non-trivial equipment and systems.

The graduates design, build and test the computer part of such systems. Their strong mathematical background and interpersonal skills equip them to work as part of an engineering team. 

Since the program is approximately half lab work and half theory, graduates have a particular advantage in the practical implementation of systems, software and circuits. 

The optional co-op stream includes four consecutive four-month work terms.

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.

The Computer Engineering Technology program has been recognized by the Royal Canadian Navy and now qualifies for Canadian Armed Forces skill recognition. 

Students who graduate from this program will receive advanced standing as a Weapons Engineering Technician in the Royal Canadian Navy (subject to successful enrolment in the Canadian Armed Forces).
