Program Length: 2 years


Skilled and adaptive electronics engineering specialists are in high demand with the unprecedented and rapid growth of the electronics engineering industry. RCCIT graduates are often recruited before they graduate. The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.) category.

RCCIT Electronics Engineering Technology graduates can work anywhere in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union. The Electronics Engineering Technology Diploma will give you both the design and business skills for rewarding career opportunities in a variety of business, industry, and government sectors including:

  • Semiconductor Chip Manufacturing
  • Telecommunications
  • Computer Networking
  • Transportation
  • Medicine
  • Space exploration

Industry experts will teach you how to manage concepts, from the design to creation of products and services. In small classes and labs (on average 20 students), you will use the most current technology to develop prototypes, optimize designs and manage system operations. You will apply engineering principles and methods to support manufacturing and quality. You will also develop project management and business skills and compile a professional portfolio of your work, including a new product prototype.

Coursework and labs cover:

  • Circuit analysis
  • Electronic and digital circuits
  • Analog communications
  • Microcontrollers
  • Networking
  • Analog signal processing
  • Telecommunications technology

Learning Outcomes

  • How to use C++ and draw from mathematics, physics and computer science fundamentals
  • How to solve engineering problems through differential calculus and physics
  • How to apply electronic and digital circuit analysis and design and analog signal processing
  • How to apply microcontroller systems fundamentals and programming techniques
  • How to use digital systems, control systems, and microwave communications
  • How to apply fundamental Canadian ethical and legal business principles
  • How to project manage a team
  • How to apply communications media characteristics and networking principles
  • How to write informative and persuasive business documents
  • How to present your achievements and professional development plans in a professional portfolio
  • How to design, evaluate, and present a new product prototype in a capstone final group project

Pathways to the Bachelor of Technology

Electronics Engineering graduates with a GPA of 3.0 or higher qualify for direct admission into the Bachelor of Technology (Electronics Engineering Technology). You can transfer your diploma credits to complete the Bachelor of Technology in only five additional study terms.
