Design, build and connect the electronic devices we rely on every day.

Program Overview

Learn advanced electronics engineering concepts

Stand out from the crowd as an electronics engineering technologist! After a common first two years with Electronics Engineering Technician diploma students, you’ll study niche concepts and applications in your third year. Learn about microcontrollers, wireless communication, programmable controllers, sensors, instrumentation, imaging and video systems, power electronics, control systems and more!

Study modern curriculum and technologies

Electronics are constantly evolving, and Sheridan keeps up with the latest developments. Our expert professors have built a practical and modern curriculum based on their personal experience and industry feedback from our Program Advisory Committee. We also meet regularly with employers to identify skills and technologies that matter most in today’s world, making you job-ready when you graduate.

Demonstrate your skills through a capstone project and co-op

Program Summary

Co-op

Students in this program may apply to the co-op program during their second academic semester. Enrolment in the Co-op program is limited through an additional co-op application process that takes place at the end of the first year. Students in the co-op program are eligible to complete three co-op work terms prior to graduation. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship.

Co-operative Education is a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with paid or unpaid work experience within a professional environment. Co-op work terms are related specifically to the academic studies of each student. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.

Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the work term. The co-op component is delivered by Sheridan’s Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 Co-op/Internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
