Our six-semester program focuses on industrial electrical power, process controls, and automation systems, however the program content and skills can also be applied to commercial and residential settings. There is a high degree of practical lab work within the program using modern industrial equipment and software to ensure students gain the technical knowledge and experience needed for industry.

Extensive hands-on training and applied learning through labs, an applied project course, and an optional co-op provide students with the practical experience they need to succeed in the workplace.

With a focus on safety, students are trained in industry health and safety standards and regulations such as:

  • Canadian Electrical Code
  • Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • CSA Electrical Safety Standard
  • WHMIS
  • Working at Heights
  • Confined Space Identification
  • Hoisting and Rigging

Students who have completed the four-semester Electrical Engineering Technician program will have a pathway into the third year of the Electrical Engineering Technology program.

Our lab facilities are equipped with the latest technology and tools. We offer small lab section sizes and, whenever possible, each student has their own workstation and set of equipment to work with to provide individual training.

Fleming is home to the Centre for Advancement in Mechatronics and Industrial Internet of Things (CAMIIT), a multipurpose research centre for both industrial and academic research projects. Students may have opportunities to participate in applied research projects right on campus relating to system design, advanced manufacturing, the industrial internet of things or 3D printing.

With extensive hands-on lab work and applied research projects related to CAMIIT, you will have many opportunities to gain practical, applied experience. Students in the program may also take part in Siemens Canada's Dual Education Program for Engineering and Technologist Students, an innovative work-integrated learning program that provides an educational and professional foundation for students. It includes a structured mentorship program and hands-on work experience.

The program also prepares you for certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) as a Certified Engineering Technologist (CET).

This program does offer an optional paid co-op between semesters 4 and 5. Please visit the Electrical Engineering Technology Optional Co-op program page for more information.
