|Field of Study:||Electrical, Electronic and Comm. Engin. Tech./Technician
|Description:||As a student of ELN, you’ll gain a broad understanding of instrumentation, process control, sequential control, data acquisition, servo control, event–driven PC programming, PLC programming using modern industrial programming languages (IEC 61131–3), analog/digital electronics, AC and DC machines, industrial field bus and conventional networks, and power electronics. During the final year of the program, you’ll focus on applying learned principles to a project demonstrating computer control of a manufacturing process. The project involves the integration of PLCs, PCs, a robot using field bus and ethernet technology and TCP/ IP protocol. You’ll also study instrumentation and control systems to better understand the effects of process static and dynamic characteristics on control strategy and controller tuning.
Apply for optional co–op in your third semester, and if accepted, you’ll gain valuable on–the–job work experience, an opportunity to apply the skills learned in your courses and exposure to employers in the industry. Our employers are committed to providing all co–op students with meaningful work assignments. You could graduate with up to 12 months of paid employment experience while spending only four or eight months longer to achieve your diploma. To be eligible for and progress in co–op, you must achieve and maintain above–average academic standards.
