Program Overview

Electrical Engineering is for those who are wired to wonder about how systems work. You'll learn how to design, commission, test, operate, troubleshoot, and maintain electrical systems and support systems. Our program offers further specialization in power distribution at our Saint John campus and alternate energy production and control at our Moncton campus. Electrical Engineering Technologists work wherever systems operate, including rewarding careers in diverse fields such as: medicine, telecommunications, aerospace, and computing.
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 semesters, allowing for seamless transfer across programs by the third semester of year one. Year two provides more in-depth electrical training with specialization pathways that may include:
POWER DISTRIBUTION (Saint John campus)
Focusing on, but not limited to, the distribution of power in commercial and industrial settings, from the utility service entrance to the final energy utilization devices.
ALTERNATE ENERGY (Moncton campus)
Focusing on, but not limited to, the production and control of sustainable energy using sources such as wind, solar and geothermal.


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