Program Overview

Humber’s advanced diploma program in Electronics Engineering Technology consistently ranks among 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 a strong fundamental knowledge to help you build a career in new and emerging technologies such as Augumented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) photonics, Autonomous Systems, laser technology, medical imaging, new electronic materials and devices, Artificial Intelligent Systems (AI), entertainment, and the broadcasting industry.

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

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

We have designed the curriculum in collaboration with an advisory panel comprised of highly successful industry experts in order to ensure you are learning the most up-to-date, relevant material. The program provides you with extensive hands-on opportunities to design electronic, analog, digital and programmable circuits and to learn how to embed circuits into smart devices, industrial equipment and consumer products. The program also offers a co-op option.

Work Placement

This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.

For students who are accepted into the program, two co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 2 and 3, and the second four-month work term is between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply.  While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.

The Humber Advantage

Special Events

National Engineering Month is Canada’s largest celebration of engineering excellence, and this year students from Humber’s Electronics Engineering Technology program teamed up with Humberwood 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! 

FIRST Robotics Competition 2022

Humber Hosts FIRST Robotics Competition 2022

In partnership with FIRST Robotics Canada
March 5 to 6, 2022

The goal of FIRST Robotics is to empower competitors to be the next generation of leaders and innovators who will go on to tackle the world’s toughest challenges.

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, and GE Canada, to mention just a few. They put their skills 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 start up on their own and launch their own businesses.
