Camosun College’s Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology department welcomes international students. We have many programs to choose from and may be able to provide custom course selections, according to your education and experience.

If you are interested in getting hands-on skills in a short period of time, the Network Electronics Technician program may be for you. This full-time certificate program lasts 9 months and prepares you for entry into the electronics industry. Courses are heavily supported by laboratory time and focus on such topics as networking, computer repair, computer-aided design, and electronic circuit troubleshooting. By the end of the program you will be ready to write examinations leading to A+ and the Cisco Networking certification of CCNA, both internationally recognized and highly valued by industry. Your work as a Network Electronics Technician may include building and troubleshooting circuits, creating and managing computer networks, or maintaining and repairing personal computers.

If you seek a heavier emphasis on design work, consider the Electronics Engineering Technology program or the Computer Engineering Technology program. Each of these full-time diploma programs lasts approximately 2.5 years, including paid co-operative work experience. The programs comprise six academic terms, during which you will study: analog and digital circuit design, computer communications, embedded systems, digital signal processing, data acquisition, and wireless systems. While Electronics Engineering Technologists delve deeper into control theory and power electronics, Computer Engineering Technologists study computer architecture and systems engineering. Both options culminate in a project design course that allows students to put their skills to use.

A diploma from one of the Technology programs can lead you further, to a degree in Engineering. A six-month Engineering Bridge program is designed to prepare Technologists for entry into the third year of Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering at the University of Victoria. This popular but rigorous program is targeted at Technologists who are interested, motivated and have good grades, and preferably have Technologist work experience.

In addition to the abovementioned programs, opportunities exist for you to take courses of interest provided you have suitable prerequisites. Companies may wish to send their employees for upgrading in a particular area, for example. If you are interested in a few specific courses or in a custom program designed to suit a group of students, please contact our department chair to discuss the possibilities.
