Overview

College Diploma in Electrical Engineering Technician

A skilled electrical engineering technician is always in demand.

Featuring extensive hands-on instruction in the state-of-the-art labs, Northern’s two-year Electrical Engineering Technician diploma will prepare you for tomorrow’s economy.

With a broad focus that includes computers, digital circuits and renewable energy, you’ll install, test, operate, repair and maintain modern industrial, electrical and electronic systems. 

And along the way, you’ll master all the tools and instruments that are the ‘eyes’ of electrical work and technicians.

You can also sign on as an apprentice electrician – or stay at Northern for an extra year to graduate with an advanced diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology.

There’s the option of a university degree, too. So whatever direction you choose, it’s definitely a solid career move.

Technicians will learn how to select, design, install, maintain, program and troubleshoot modern industrial, electrical and electronic systems. 

Graduates from the Technician or Technology programs may obtain certification through the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
