Design, build and connect the electronic devices we rely on every day.
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
Earn while you learn! As an advanced diploma student, you’ll be eligible for paid co-op placements between semesters, enabling you to graduate with one year of industry experience. You’ll also work with your fellow students on a capstone project that will be presented to employers during an open house event. Some students receive job offers as a result of their capstone or co-op participation.
Creative, innovative learning is at the core of all Sheridan’s courses. Here are the courses you’ll take in this program.

Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent, including these required courses:
- One English, Grade 12 (ENG4C or ENG4U)
- Grade 12 Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C) or Grade 11 Functions (MCF3M) or Grade 11 Functions and Relations (MCR3U) or any Grade 12 (U) Mathematics
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements will be invited to complete pre-admission tests in mathematics and English. Applicants asked to take the test are considered for admission to Term 1 contingent on receiving a minimum grade of 60% in both the pre-admission mathematics/English tests.
Applicants lacking the Mathematics admission requirement for this program may wish to upgrade their Mathematics prior to application. For upgrading information, please contact us.
Applicants may also consider applying to our Technology Fundamentals program. Successful completion of this program will meet the Mathematics requirement and will provide a broader sense of the Science and Technology fields.
Eligible applicants will be selected on the basis of their previous academic achievement (the average of their six highest senior-level credits, including required courses), and/or results of pre-admission testing.
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for this program will be assessed and advised individually and may be considered for other, related programs.
English Language Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Sheridan’s English proficiency requirements.
The skills and hands-on experience you acquire in Sheridan’s Electronics Engineering Technology program can lead to specialized positions within the electronics industry.
Upon graduation, you may find employment in roles such as:
- Computer Aided Designer
- Communication Technologist
- Field Application Technologist
- Embedded System Programmer
- Instrument Technologist
- Control System Specialist
- Power and Automation Technologist
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.
