Humber’s Electronics Engineering Technician diploma program emphasizes electronic products, control systems and telecommunications - all built on a strong basis of computer and networking engineering. You’ll spend approximately half your time in labs developing hands-on knowledge of electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits. Industry leaders will teach you about computer programming and interfacing, local area networks, radio frequency circuits, basic programmable logic controllers, industrial electronics, wired and wireless telephones, and troubleshooting techniques. You’ll be taught how to embed these circuits into cell phones, audio and high-definition (HD) video systems, robots, computers, and advanced instruments.

You’ll also build and test circuit boards, learn soldering techniques, and program industrial controllers and embedded systems in our state-of-the-art labs.

This program shares curriculum with the first two years of a three-year program in Electronics Engineering Technology. Many students who complete these two years and graduate as technicians continue on for one more year to the advanced diploma and become technologists.

Courses Program Standards

Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:

  • Analyze*, interpret, modify and prepare electrical and electronics drawings, layouts and reports, with guidance as required.
  • Analyze* and solve routine technical problems related to electronics engineering by applying fundamental concepts of mathematics and science.
  • Apply appropriate troubleshooting* techniques to electronic circuits or systems and perform test procedures.
  • Assemble, modify, test and troubleshoot* electronic circuits, equipment and systems in accordance with job requirements*, functional specifications* and relevant standards, with guidance as required.
  • Maintain and repair electronic equipment and systems in accordance with relevant operational guidelines.
  • Provide justification for the purchase of electronic equipment, components and systems in accordance with code, standards and job requirements*, and functional specifications*.
  • Analyze* and troubleshoot* logic and digital circuits, as well as embedded microprocessor*-based and microcontroller*-based systems, including assembly and high-level language programs.
  • Analyze* and troubleshoot* circuits consisting of passive components by applying appropriate measurement techniques.
  • Analyze* and troubleshoot* circuits consisting of low power, high power, active and electromechanical components, and analog integrated circuits.
  • Analyze* and troubleshoot* control systems.
  • Troubleshoot*, maintain and repair analog and digital communication systems.
  • Apply relevant shop practices* in compliance with safety policies and current regulations for electronics engineering workplaces.
  • Assist in implementing and conducting quality control* and quality assurance* programs and procedures.

This year, the School of Applied Technology chose Albert Jansen as the recipient of the Board of Governor's Award. Academically, Albert was one of the top students throughout the three years of the Electronics Engineering Technology program.

Special Events

Humberwood students

National Engineering Month is Canada’s largest celebration of engineering excellence, and this year students from Humber’s Electronics Engineering Technology program teamed up withHumberwood Downs Junior Middle Academy to give middle school students a taste of how electronics technology and green energy are an important part of Canada’s future, and they even got a chance to try their hand at building electronic circuits! 

Your Career

According to the Electro-Federation Canada, companies that design, install, manufacture, distribute and service electrical, electronic and telecommunications products contribute more than $50 billion to the Canadian economy while employing more than 130,000 workers at 1,400 facilities in Canada.

Our graduates have found employment with major users of large electronics systems such as broadcasting networks (including CBC, CTV), telecommunication carriers (including Rogers, Telus, Bell), manufacturers of electronics equipment (including Creation Technologies, Celestica, GE Canada), and manufacturers of scientific, medical and industrial instrumentation. Other graduates have started their own businesses or progressed to positions such as company representatives, technical salespeople and managers.
