Electronics Engineering Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology
Learn how to design, analyze and troubleshoot electronic circuits and systems for a career as an electronics engineering technologist, working in areas such as GPS-based systems, surveillance and wireless communication systems. Prepare for an electrical engineering career with professional, technical and practical skills, such as problem-solving, research, design, prototyping, implementation, installation and testing of electronics-based systems. You'll learn about digital and analog applications, electronic controls, computer-based circuit design and simulation, microprocessor systems, RF communications, and computer-enhanced test and measurement systems. When you complete the program you'll have the relevant technical, applied and professional skills that employers seek in this dynamic industry sector. Your employment opportunities include electronic engineering technologist assisting in research, design, development of prototyping of electronic-based circuits and systems. As a graduate of the program, you'll also have the opportunity to continue your studies toward an Engineering degree. Transfer options are available to various universities across Canada. Working with electrical engineers who provide the conceptual design, as an electronics engineering technologist, you will assist with the practical aspects of circuit design and analyze circuit performance. Electronics engineering technologists design and/or evaluate the performance of the circuit using a variety of analysis methods. Technologists also work closely with technicians who fabricate, troubleshoot, measure and calibrate the systems. This program incorporates instructor-led instruction and discussions enhanced with computer-based presentations and simulation software. Your classes integrate time in the lab, allowing you to apply your knowledge in a real, practical environment. You'll also utilize an e-learning (SAIT issued laptop computer) instructional delivery method.
