Program Overview

Electronics Engineering Technologists are always plugged in. They know how to diagnose and solve electronic system issues and develop best practices. You'll learn how to design, commission, test, operate, troubleshoot, and maintain and support electronic systems. During your second year, further specialization is available in communication systems and biomedical systems at our Saint John campus, and industrial controls at our Moncton campus. In this wired world, Electronics Engineering Technologists are never short on work.
Please note: It is highly recommended that you have physics as one of your two mandatory sciences for admission.

All Electronics and Electrical Engineering Technology programs have a common first two terms, allowing for seamless transfer across programs by the third term of year one. Year two provides more in-depth electronics training with specialization pathways that may include:
Focusing on, but not limited to, the production of wireless, digital, data and/or fiber optic communication systems.
BIOMEDICAL (Saint John campus)
Focusing on, but not limited to, the installation and maintenance of electronic and computer-controlled equipment used in health care settings.
Focusing on, but not limited to, the installation and maintenance of electronic and computer-controlled systems used in industrial settings.


The requirements for this diploma program may be achieved within two academic years of full-time study.
