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 Learning Outcomes

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.
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.
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!
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.
