Program Highlights

The four-semester Electrical Engineering Technician program will provide you with a solid foundation. You will learn about programmable logic controls (PLCs), electrical and electronic circuits and systems, instrumentation, cabling, network engineering, and electrical machines and controls. Extensive practice labs will provide you with ample opportunity to develop skills required to assume entry level positions or an electrical apprenticeship.

A technical skills shortage is looming both regionally and nationally in Canada. This program has been designed to help fill these technical positions as the manufacturing sector becomes more specialized, the construction industry flourishes, and retirement rates increase.

Is this You?

You will need these abilities and skills to succeed:

  • an interest in skilled trades and technology
  • enjoyment of problem-solving and troubleshooting
  • manual dexterity
  • a degree of mathematical savvy in order to conduct the calculations necessary (assistance for those not yet proficient with Math has been factored into the program curriculum).

Career Opportunities

Electrical Engineering Technicians are required to:

  • develop and test power equipment and systems
  • troubleshoot industrial process control systems
  • set up micro-electronic systems and circuits
  • install and commission electrical and electronic equipment and systems
  • analyze the performance of electrical and electronic components

A very broad spectrum of career opportunities exists within the electrical industry. Graduates can be employed by electrical utility and power companies, industrial plants, communications companies, and manufacturers of electrical equipment. Consulting firms, construction sites, mining, and transportation industries all hire technicians to design and maintain electrical and electronic systems for use in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial installations.

Graduates of this program may also choose to apply for apprenticeship and write the Basic Exemption Test for Electrical Apprentice and receive credit for some of the in-school portions of the apprenticeship program. Following graduation, you could seek employment as an industrial, maintenance, or construction electrician apprentice.

Upon graduation from Electrical Engineering Technician, with just 8 additional courses you can complete a second diploma at Fleming in the Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technician program and graduate with 2 diplomas in 3 years.
