||Diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology - Marine and Industrial
The Electrical Engineering Technology - Marine & Industrial program has been designed to prepare graduates for employment in the Marine Sector and in the general Industrial Electrical field. This program shares the first year of the Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology - Renewable Energy program.
Within the first year, students will learn the fundamental theories and skills necessary to proceed to more advanced industry-specific topics. In the second year of the program, topics such as Electric Machines, Power Distribution, Control Theory, and others related to the electrical technology field will be presented. In addition, topics related to the marine sector will be introduced.
Students participate in and integrate their learning through a range of learning experiences including in class and project based learning. In the final semester of the program, students consolidate their learning in applied research and project management courses.
- Computer-aided design (CAD)
- Fundamental analog and digital circuit design
- Design and implementation of programmable logic controller (PLC) control systems
- Analysis, monitoring, control and design of complex electrical systems
- Communications systems design and installation
- Marine electrical propulsion systems
- Technical and sales support in the electrical technology field
And one of:
At the completion of the program, students will be able to:
- Apply engineering, mathematical and scientific theoretical knowledge to the design, modification, construction, implementation and testing of electrical systems, circuits, equipment and PLCs.
- Demonstrate knowledge of fundamental electrical systems, communication systems and environmental issues in marine systems.
- Apply technical skills to design, construct, modify, and test electrical systems, circuits, equipment and PLCs.
- Analyze, troubleshoot, and solve technical problems related to electrical systems, circuits and equipment by applying advanced principles of engineering, mathematics and science.
- Conduct all work in compliance with relevant standards, regulations, codes, and safety practices.
- Apply the basic principles of project management to the development and completion of electrical engineering projects.
- Communicate clearly, concisely, and effectively in spoken, written and visual forms appropriate to audience purpose and needs.
- Use interpersonal and intercultural skills to support and promote effective collaboration and communication with colleagues, team members, and employers.
- Demonstrate professional and ethical conduct as an electrical engineering technologist.
Optional Program Credential Designation
- Graduates of this program with a GPA of at least 5.0 (B) and no grade less than a “C” in any course may apply to the Electrical & Computer Engineering Bridge program which bridges to the third year of Electrical or Computer Engineering at the University of Victoria.
- Students may apply to enter the Engineering program at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Both universities offer accredited Bachelor of Engineering degrees.
