Electronic engineering technician program focuses on latest technology

  1. 1. Electronic Engineering Technician Program Focuses on Latest Technology As technological advances are made, the electronics field is a constantly evolving one. It requires professionals to be trained in areas such as designing, installing, manufacturing, distributing, and servicing electrical, electronic and telecommunications products for industries such as telecommunications, computer applications, control systems, radio and television equipment and audio-visual equipment. The tasks of the Electronic Engineering Technician may vary depending on the area he or she chooses to work in, but these professionals must all have the know-how to:  Fabricate parts, such as coils, terminal boards, and chassis, using bench lathes, drills, or other machine tools.  Write computer or microprocessor software programs.  Test electronics units, using standard test equipment, and analyze results to evaluate performance and determine need for adjustment.  Identify and resolve equipment malfunctions, working with manufacturers and field representatives as necessary to procure replacement parts.  Provide user applications and engineering support and recommendations for new and existing equipment with regard to installation, upgrades and enhancement  Provide customer support and education, working with users to identify needs, determine sources of problems and to provide information on product use. To complete such as wide range of duties, aspiring techs must attend an Electronics Engineering program such as Centennial College’s Electronics Engineering Technician. This undertaking offers a complete education, as it helps students to develop technical expertise in areas such as wireless communications, data communications, microcontrollers and industrial systems. This is achieved through program facilitation out of Progress Campus, one of the largest trades training centres in the Greater Toronto Area. This location features classrooms that include computers, communication transceivers and electronics testing and measurement equipment, so that students may enjoy hands-on application while developing a solid foundation in modern electronics. Not only is theory reinforced in modern labs, but faculty members also ensure that a healthy and inclusive learning environment exists. Among specific courses included in the program are: Electronics Shop Practices, Electric Circuits, Digital Electronics, Electric Circuits, Microcontrollers, Electronic Communications Systems, Employment Skills, Control Systems and many others, including a Quality Control and Technician Project (at the end of which students complete complex testing and practical troubleshooting procedures to support and supplement the theoretical quality control procedures).
  2. 2. In addition, Electronics Engineering diploma students can enjoy a membership role in an active student branch of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). As graduates, they may also become members of a multidisciplinary group involved in equipment manufacturing or installation, research and testing, equipment maintenance and repair, and sales. It should be noted that qualified college or university graduates with a background in electronics gain direct admission into semester three of this two-year program and receive their Electronics Engineering Technician diploma in two semesters.
