Our Program

Humber’s advanced diploma program in Electronics Engineering Technology consistently ranks among one of our most employable programs. This program builds on skills learned in the Electronics Engineering Technician diploma program and will prepare you to work in all fields where electric circuits and systems are found.

You will acquire strong fundamental knowledge to help you build a career in all new and emerging technologies manufactured here in North America like photonics, laser technology, medical imaging, new electronic materials and devices, intelligent systems, entertainment, and broadcasting systems.

The program takes a system design and integration approach to electronic applications, and you will gain in-depth knowledge and hands-on training in:

  • electronic circuits: analog, digital, radio-frequency and programmable circuits
  • connectivity and interface design, embedded microcontrollers, IoT integration
  • the full skillset of computer networking including wireless networks
  • wireless telecommunications, antennas, waveguides and transmission lines
  • telecommunication electronics such as photonics, fibre optics and microwaves
  • signal acquisition and signal processing
  • image processing including high-definition television (HDTV) and medical imaging
  • control systems both embedded and computer-based
  • instrumentation used in both industrial, scientific and medical applications.

We have designed the curriculum in collaboration with an advisory panel comprising highly successful industry experts in order to ensure you are learning the most up-to-date, relevant material. You will spend approximately half your time in labs working with electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits and learning how to embed these circuits into cell phones, audio equipment, high-definition (HD) video systems, robots, computers and advanced instruments.

 

Courses Program Standards

Work Placement

Our program features an optional, preferably paid work placement directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation.

The Humber Advantage

Software & Technology

Graduates who seek high-end jobs as well as those who choose to continue on to university, will find themselves well prepared and comfortable with high-end software tools such as SPICE-based circuit simulators, VHDL, MATLAB, SIMULINK, LabVIEW and the signal and image processing toolboxes routinely used in industry and university programs.

Student Spotlight

albert jansen

This year, the School of Applied Technology chose Albert Jansen as the recipient of the Board of Governor's Award. This award is given to one graduating student in each academic school, as chosen by the Dean of the School, on recommendations from faculty, "who has achieved his/her academic goals while attending to significant College, community or personal commitments."

Special Events

Humberwood students

Humber Electronics Students partner with Humberwood Downs Junior Middle Academy for National Engineering Month to give middle school students a taste of how electronics technology and green energy are an important part of Canada’s future.

Your Career

Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) reports that 75 per cent of the new jobs created between 2009 and 2018 are in high-skill, high-tech occupations. This demand will only grow as technology continues to advance and change the way we live and work especially in industrially dynamic regions such as the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Our graduates work at major organizations such as CTV and CBC, Ontario Power Generation, Hydro One, Rogers, Telus and Bell, as well as BlackBerry, Celestica, and GE Canada, to mention just a few. They put the skills they acquired at Humber to work in research and development where they build prototypes and test new devices. They are manufacturers’ representatives, technical salespeople, managers and entrepreneurs. They manufacture electronic systems and install, maintain and troubleshoot such systems through their lifecycle. Some of our graduates choose to strike out on their own and launch their own businesses.
