Electrical Engineering Technology

Diploma

Program Overview

Western Canada is growing—our economy, our population, our demand for energy. Electrical engineering technologists are specialists in the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of energy. It’s a powerful career choice that demands good problem-solving skills and an eye for detail. In return, you’ll enjoy good job prospects, excellent mobility and great earning potential.

The Electrical Engineering Technology program is a three-year diploma offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Moose Jaw Campus. There are five academic semesters, plus three Co-operative Education work terms.

You’ll study topics similar to Electronic Systems Engineering Technology students, including computer-aided drafting, computer applications and programming, digital logic circuits, basic electricity, semi-conductor electronics and AC circuits. Your knowledge and skills will become more focused as you advance. You’ll study:

  • electrical system design
  • lighting design
  • electrical power generation
  • relaying and protection
  • electrical systems and transmission design
  • electrical machines
  • industrial control systems
  • instrumentation

Lab work and projects provide a hands-on focus to learning. You’ll develop a technical proposal, apply research skills to a technical problem, design and build electrical systems and more.

The Co-op Work Term Advantage

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you’ll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it’s up to you to shine. It’s also a chance to develop important “soft skills” in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Diploma to Degree

Use your diploma to ladder into an engineering degree at Lakehead University in Ontario or a technology degree at Memorial University in Newfoundland.

Career and Salary Information

Your Career

Demand for electrical engineering technology graduates is strong. There are opportunities in construction, manufacturing, consulting engineering, power generation, renewable energy, mining, oil and gas. You could work in plant operations and maintenance, technical sales and service, automated control systems, design, estimating, metering and more.

Special Admission

Applicants who do not possess the academic qualifications for a program may be admitted if evidence of probable success can be established through a special admission assessment. Interested individuals should still apply. Applicants are automatically considered for special admission. However, some specific admission requirements may still need to be met. Refer to the ACCUPLACER© cut scores for this program below, and review additional details concerning Special Admission.

Admission Method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.

PLAR & Transfer Credit

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

Saskatchewan Polytechnic recognizes that adults learn in many different ways and through many different means. This includes acquiring knowledge and skills through life and work experience or non-formal training.


Transfer Credit

Many Saskatchewan Polytechnic students benefit from transferring credit. You may be eligible to transfer credit from or to another college or university. To learn more, visit our transfer credit web page.

 


Transfer credit options vary over time; this information is subject to change. Transfer credit options for this program include:

  • admission eligibility to the Bachelor of Technology program, Memorial University, Newfoundland (13 courses, totalling 39 credit hours, are required to fulfill the degree requirements; courses are available online)
  • advanced standing toward an engineering degree, Lakehead University (post-diploma programs typically consist of transition courses followed by two years of full-time study)

Student Awards

Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives away more than $2 million in student awards during the academic year.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers student awards for every certificate and diploma program at every campus. You don't have to be a brainiac to receive a student award. Not all student awards are based on marks - some are based on financial need or things like community or volunteer involvement.
