Technology like microprocessors, robots, lasers, fibre optics, computer-aided engineering, personal computers, artificial intelligence, biomedical electronics, satellite communications and wireless networking all use microelectronic technology. In this program, you will have the ability to solve technical and scientific problems with these and other technologies. And thanks to the widespread proliferation of advanced and sophisticated systems around the world, demand for well-qualified electronics technologists is and will be high for years to come. The program emphasizes practical skills and state-of-the-art applications to ensure immediate applicability to the needs of industry.
Students and faculty in the School of Information Communication and Engineering Technologies work with a variety of partners to solve applied research challenges. One project related to Electronics Engineering Technology is the Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) Robotics Project which is creating a prototype of a low-cost hazard assessment robot for police and fire departments. The robot will be used in situations where there are potential dangers to first responders or the public.
The Electronics Engineering Technology program was profiled in Project President, where NAIT President Dr. Glenn Feltham was introduced to the police robot prototype built by NAIT researchers and competed with students in a sumo robotics competition.
