High School / Secondary Education (or higher)
To be eligible for admission, you must possess a high school diploma including these required courses (or equivalents):
Note: Grade 11 or 12 Physics or Science or Conestoga College Preparatory Physics is desirable but not mandatory.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
For direct admission, you must be from an English-speaking country or, you must provide one of the English language proficiency tests below:
Graduates from Electronics/Computer/Telecommunications Engineering Technician/Technology programs work with electronic, computer and communications equipment and systems. They are technical experts and problem solvers. Many of our graduates report that they enjoy the creative aspects of the job and seeing projects come to life. The three programs have the same first year.
At the end of the first year, students may switch programs if they desire. Graduates of the Computer Engineering Technology program are able to design, build, test and repair a computer-based system or any part of one. Their very strong electronics knowledge and skills enable them to take on many roles in the industry. Their strength in hardware, mathematics and theory equips them to interface with the physical world. Because of the power of embedded processor chips, they are used to simplify (and make less expensive) most non-trivial equipment and systems. (Fuel injection and pollution control for automobiles is a classic example). Our graduates design, build and test the computer part of such systems. Their strong mathematical background and interpersonal skills equip them to work as part of an engineering team. Since the program is approximately half lab work and half theory, graduates have a particular advantage in the practical implementation of systems, software and circuits.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.
The Computer Engineering Technology program has been recognized by the Royal Canadian Navy and now qualifies for Canadian Armed Forces skill recognition. Students who graduate from this program will receive advanced standing as a Weapons Engineering Technician in the Royal Canadian Navy (subject to successful enrolment in the Canadian Armed Forces).
Applying to the Co-op Stream
The optional co-op stream includes four consecutive four-month work terms.
Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.
The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.
Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.
To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum overall 65% weighted average in Year 1 with no dropped or failed courses.
Computer engineering technologists are in high demand and that demand will increase in the future as technological advances spread to more industries. Our graduates are responsible for design, construction and troubleshooting of complex digital equipment and systems. Companies who hire our graduates produce business, automation and scientific equipment.
