Where would we be without electricity and electrical systems? They power almost every aspect of our lives. If you're wired up to wonder about how these systems work, training as an Electrical Engineering Technologist may be a great career connection. As we move away from fossil fuels for power toward sustainable power generation such as solar, wind, geothermal, and energy-efficient electrical equipment design, electrical engineering technologists will be at the forefront of positive change.
In our Electrical Engineering Technology program, you'll learn how to design, commission, test, operate, troubleshoot, and maintain electrical systems and support systems. You also have the opportunity to specialize in power distribution or alternative energy production. It is strongly recommended that you have physics as one of your two mandatory sciences for admissions.
As our communications, electrical, and other critical infrastructure continues to evolve and expand, your expertise will be in high demand. If you enjoy science and technology, enrol today in the Electrical Engineering Technology program and pursue a career that's charged with opportunities.
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.
