|The Electronics Engineering Technician program will prepare you for a challenging career in the electronics field. Through an optimum balance of hands-on experience and theory, courses in this college diploma program will cover areas such as wireless communications, data communications, microcontrollers and industrial systems. To develop a solid foundation in modern electronics, you'll work in labs with computers, communication transceivers, and electronics testing and measurement equipment. Two years in length, the college engineering program will also give you the option to continue your studies by transferring into the fifth semester of its Technologist version. To do so, you'll be required to have a minimum 2.0 GPA.
Please note: Qualified college or university graduates with a background in electronics may gain direct admission into semester three of this two-year program and receive their Electronics Engineering Technician diploma in two semesters (program #3221). As a program #3205 student, if you complete 80 per cent of the Year 1 course load and have a GPA of 3.5 or above, you'll be able to enrol in the Samsung Pathway. As part of the Electronics Technician program, you'll take preparatory course modules to write the TSSA GAS Technician 3 certification exam. Upon completion of the entire program, you'll receive a Recognition of Achievement – Samsung Pathway in addition to your Centennial College diploma (program #3220).
