Diversify your skills

The Electrical Engineering Technology—Marine & Industrial program provides you with all the knowledge you need to work in a variety of positions within the Marine sector, and industrial electrical field.

You'll develop your skills with electrical devices such as VFD’s, PLC’s and Electrical Machines and will be able to design and document these complex electrical systems that can be applied in both marine and industrial projects.

Career opportunities

As an Electrical Engineering Technologist, you'll be equipped for employment in:

  • Computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Analog and digital circuitry design
  • Design and implementation of programmable logic controller (PLC) control systems
  • Analysis, monitoring, control and design of complex electrical systems
  • Communications systems design and installation
  • Marine electrical propulsion systems
  • Technical and sales support in the electrical technology field

Bridge to UVic

You may convert your diploma into a degree by applying to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Bridge.

The eight-month bridge program leads directly into the third year of a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering at UVic.

An investment in your career

Invest in yourself! With your new analytical and technical skills you’ll be well-prepared for a rewarding career in Electrical Engineering Technology.

Estimated Tuition Fees

Effective from September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022.

$16,214 (domestic)

$40,930  (international)

Additional Student Fees

Be the change

In the classroom, you'll develop your skills with electrical devices such as VFD’s, PLC’s and Electrical Machines and will be able to design and document these complex electrical systems that can be applied in both marine and industrial projects.

What to expect

The program is delivered over five semesters, starting in September and running through to the end of April. You have the option of taking paid co-op or internship work terms but you do not have to decide until later in first year.

The program is rigorous, requiring you to do work outside of the classroom. In addition to approximately 30 hours per week of class time, you should expect to spend between 15-20 hours outside of the classroom per week.

Year 1

In your first year, you'll learn some fundamental electrical theory and apply this to semiconductors. You'll learn to program in the C language and will have completed your first microcontroller course.

Digital fundamentals will be understood and you'll have the opportunity to program PLDs using both a graphical interface as well as by VHDL. You'll also be introduced to a wide range of renewable energy technologies.

Years 2 & 3

In the second year you'll expand your knowledge to include electrical drives and control systems, as well adapting your foundation knowledge to marine-specific applications in engineering, power, and communications systems. In your final term you'll develop your project management skills and showcase your final project at the Capstone Symposium.

Optional Co-op/Internship Designation

As an Electrical Engineering Technology—Marine & Industrial student, you have the option to supplement your classroom learning with the completion of up to three paid work terms. After successful completion of these optional work experiences, you'll qualify for either the Co-op or Internship designation when you graduate.
