After learning the basic fundamentals of trades practices, diesel engines, fuel systems, power trains, electrical systems, hydraulic systems, steering and brake systems in first year, you will be introduced to diesel engine construction and classification, power trains, traction controls and wheel final drives, electrical and electronics, and air conditioning. Courses will also include an emphasis on shop safety, basic hand and power tools, fasteners, measuring instruments, starting aid, and starting methods used in the trade.

You’ll work on off-road heavy equipment such as loaders, bulldozers, trucks, and various components like engines, transmissions, brake systems, fuel systems, hydraulic systems found in Cambrian’s heavy equipment shop. You’ll develop the ability to work service and maintain the various electronic control systems and components found on heavy equipment.

This program features an optional, paid co-op directly related to your program of study. During this work-integrated learning experience, you’ll apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, giving you industry training that you can showcase to potential employers when you graduate.

You will be required to complete work preparation sessions prior to the work term to help you develop an industry-specific resume and effective interviewing skills. Cambrian’s Career Centre will support you through this process and will also help you to source and apply for placement opportunities.

I studied electrical engineering technology at Cambrian, where I got good teachers with theoretical knowledge and practical training. The facilities were awesome as well, with tons of labs available for all sorts of programs.

Classes were decently small, with around 40 people per class.

Tons of events on campus as well, new students get to meet tons of new people and attend a variety of events and games. The teachers show up sometimes too, which is a laugh for everyone else there.

Speaking of those teachers, they were all great for the most part. It’s clear they have experience in their fields. They put a lot of weight on practical learning, which i prefer, and always encouraged us to participate in class.

Even the campus housing was good. It was easy to make new friends as a first year student, and as a newcomer to Canada this was important to me.

Overall, if you’re thinking about attending Cambrian for electrical engineering, if you put in the effort, you will have a great experience.
