Additional Information

Mohawk College students enrolled in the two year Electrical Engineering Technician program at the Stoney Creek Campus will be earning more than a technician diploma! Graduates of this program will have taken the in-school portion of the basic, intermediate and advanced apprenticeship programming in the related trade - (442A) Industrial Electrician. This allows graduates to enter an apprenticeship - for which many large employers are demanding a technician diploma for entry - with the three in-school levels of in-school training completed.

Graduates are able to register as associate members of the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
