The Program

Technology is everywhere - from the cars we drive to the cell phones in our hands to the heat in our homes. Electrical Engineering Technologists are professionals who apply the principles of electricity to develop, implement, and maintain systems that deliver power, transmit information, or control electro-mechanical devices. The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program at Red Deer College is a unique blend of the "traditional" discipline of power generation and distribution with the more contemporary specialization of Instrumentation and automatic control.

All Engineering Technologists learn fundamental skills in mathematics, sciences, computer programming, technical writing, and project management. EET students at Red Deer College pursue advanced studies in power distribution, maintenance and troubleshooting, PLC programming, Electric Machines, Industrial Data Networks and Data Acquisition Systems. Based on National Technology Benchmarks for Electrical Engineering Technology, this program, coupled with industry experience, will lead to the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) and Professional Technologist (PTech) designations. Graduates will develop knowledge and skills that enable them to:

Employ relevant industry health and safety standards, codes, policies and procedures in accordance with current legislation, regulations and organizational policy.
