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.

Advanced & Transfer Credit
For advanced credit to be awarded you need to meet with the Student Advisor to have your course equivalency assessed. To request advanced credit, you need to have transcripts, course outlines, course objectives, and previous courses taken. For more information, see Contacts.
Students may be eligible to participate in a 15-week co-op program. Successful co-op students work in a program related, industry position and gain advanced job-readiness skills. Acceptance into co-op is based on successful completion of first term coursework with a GPA of 2.3. The Workplace Preparation course (COOP 1000) is a prerequisite for the co-op work term.
January intake students would be eligible to partake in a Co-op work term during their 2nd level of studies.
Consult with the co-op coordinator for the current fee schedule and for more information.
