Communications Engineering Technology
Duration/Start: 2 years/September
Take your interest in technology to the next level. Design, manufacture and install the most up-to-date communications systems that keep us linked together.
It’s a real concept and has real-world application. The internet (IOT) is the physical network of devices, appliances, vehicles and other items that integrate and connect to exchange data and make our lives run smoother, easier and more efficiently. In this program, you’ll be at the centre of creating and supporting it.
Learn to support the design, development and repair of communication systems, such as voice, video, data, wi-fi and Bluetooth, through this accredited two-year program. You will graduate with the skills necessary to create, manufacture, install and analyze different types of communication technologies. Enjoy project-based, hands-on learning that aligns with situations you will face in the real world.
There are industry opportunities for you through our Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers student branch, Cisco Networking Systems partnership and CTAB accreditation. Assiniboine even has a connection to the Canadian Forces, where you can be accredited as a Weapon Engineering Technician.
Find employment opportunities in fields like computer-aided design, electronic design and repair, computer programming, network design, communications installation or design. In recent years, almost all of our students were offered jobs within nine months of graduation.
