Industry’s electrical needs are diverse and ranges from Electricians to Electrical Engineers. One of the special needs of any un-interrupted industrial operation is consistent power generation in response to unreliable electricity grids or when tradition hydroelectricity is unavailable. This makes Electrical Technologist with expertise in Power System Design and Maintenance valuable assets for companies.

Our Electrical Engineering Technology Diploma program addresses critical employment needs in the electric utilities work-force. The students will gain hands-on experience and necessary set of skills and competencies and broad knowledge of the Power Industry.
